FCTA decries persistence violation of building rules by developers

Authority of the Nigerian Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has decried the persistence violation of building rules and regulations by many recalcitrant developers.

The Administration through the Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), TPL Umar Shuaibu who made the remark at a conference, said that the actions of some developers escalate the simple procedures to become security, legal and social matters, with very dire consequences to the well-being of the city.

He said that the Department of Development Control had in its own small way contributed to ensuring compliance with the standard and regulations for building in Abuja.

“It is worrisome to note that while the department has simplified the procedure and processes for granting building permits, there are many recalcitrant developers that always refused to abide by the set rules and regulations.

“The first and most important procedure in the process of building plan approval is the confirmation of tittle document and land ownership submitted by the developer.

“This usually becomes a major source of hindrance to the development of many plots in the city,” he said.

The coordinator, therefore, urged intending developers to be sure that there was no contending issues surrounding plot ownership before granting a development permit.

“Unfortunately, out of desperation or treachery on the part of some developers, our staff, in the course of ensuring due process and fairness in handling ambiguous matters become victims of unwarranted harassment with framed-up charges against them by some dubious and recalcitrant developers.

He called on the security agencies to always dig and thoroughly investigate matters from the relevant FCT agencies before prosecution on any complaint on land matters.
