The Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has issued the Area Councils a 21-day ultimatum to clean up parks, markets and the entire FCT or face sanctions.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Dino Melaye gave this directive when the committee met with chairmen of the six Area Councils in the FCT.

Melaye lamented that the FCT was too dirty to be the seat of power and a capital city, stressing that no state capital around the world was as dirty as the FCT.

“This committee is giving you three weeks to clean up the metropolis, the environmental sanitation in the FCT particularly the area councils especially AMAC is poor. You see heaps of rubbish on the road side. Abuja is the pride of Africa and we cannot let this continue,” he said.

“After three weeks if you do not clean up the FCT we will clean you up. You cannot be collecting revenues from the market and the market will be very dirty. You go to our parks and it is an eye sore. Two weeks you will not clean the parks and you are generating money from that park, and when they ask you will say there is no money. We are very serious about cleaning up the city within three weeks. Clean up Abuja, especially the satellite towns,” Melaye added.
