Zero-Tolerance Enforcement Targets Unauthorized Parking and Nuisances in Abuja
The Federal Capital Territory (FCTA) officials in Abuja have launched a zero-tolerance enforcement campaign to tackle unauthorized motor parking, cow herding, and other nuisances. The recent operation resulted in the seizure of vehicles, removal of illicit food vendors and hawkers, and the arrest of beggars. The FCT Administration aims to maintain a clean and safe city for its residents, with support from various agencies.

ABUJA - The Federal Capital Territory (FCTA) officials resumed their zero-tolerance enforcement against unauthorized motor parking, cow herding in prohibited locations, and other nuisances on Wednesday.

The authorities seized 16 automobiles during the combined enforcement in front of the Federal Secretariat, Eagle Square, Appeal Court Junction, and the federal ministry of women affairs.

Also in Maitama, near the MTN office off of Aguiyi Ironsi Street, which is said to be one of the hideouts for criminals, the squad also removed illicit food vendors and hawkers.

The exercise, which was extended to Lugbe on the ever-busy Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport road, led to the seizing of about four cows and the arrest of seven beggars that constitute a nuisance to the environment.

Speaking on the operation, the Secretary Command And Control Centre FCT Administration, Mr Peter Olumuji said the administration was keen on making the city clean and safe for the residents.

He noted that the operation was the continuation of enforcing sanity across the city by combined officials of Abuja Environmental Protection Board, Social Development Secretariat, Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS) with support from the security agencies.

According to him: "The FCT Administration is poised to ensure a clean and safe city, last week, we had an enforcement on illegal cattle grazing.

"The exercise is meant to tackle various nuisances within the territory, especially the aspect of illegal motor parks, most of the taxis can be used for criminal purposes.

"We are also clearing and arresting of beggars across the territory as part of measures to maintain sanity.

"The enforcement on open grazing shows that FCT Administration still has zero tolerance for herding cattle in unauthorized places, today we have arrested about four cows. We also arrested somebody that has been impersonating as a security operative before members of the public, but today luck ran out of him. The police will handle it and he will be prosecuted accordingly."

Olumuji said the exercise was going to be sustained for the good of the Federal Capital Territory and its residents.

Meanwhile, the head of operations, Directorate of Road Traffic Services, popularly known as VIO, Deborah Osho, said negativities will not be allowed to continue in the city.

She said the indiscriminate parking of vehicles, operating of illegal parks and motorcycles plying unauthorized places, if allowed would dent the image of Abuja, as a federal capital.

"The exercise is a general clean up that is aimed at restoring sanity across the territory, this is also in line with the directive of the Senate recently, that the FCT Administration should end illegal motor parks in the territory."
