Nigeria: FCTA Goes Tough On Posters, Banners, Billboards Placement

Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) are taking proactive measures to ensure environmental sustainability of the FCT by dismantling anything that alters the Master Plan, constitutes pollution and as well punish offenders.

The Deputy Director in charge of Aesthetics & Amenities of the Department of Development Control (DDC), Abuja Metropolitan Management Council(AMMC), Arc. Adamu Abuja while speaking to journalists Tuesday in Abuja, emphasised that residents of FCT who deface the city with posters, banners and billboards of all kinds are to face penalties soon to be imposed by FCTA.

Abuja explained that the problem of posters is mostly caused by political and religious bodies, and this act, according to him, has posed a great challenge to city management.
