Reps Urge FCTA to Provide Infrastructure in FCT Satellite Towns

The House of Representatives has urged the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to provide
infrastructure in Mpape, Durumi, Lokogoma, Galadimawa and other districts being constructed by private developers.

This followed a motion moved by Rep. Lovette Idisi (Delta-PDP), which was unanimously adopted by members through a voice vote.

Moving the motion, Idisi explained that satellite districts located close to the city centre of the Federal Capital Territory being developed
lacked the requisite infrastructure.

He said that ``the rate of infrastructure development in some districts of the FCT has not been commensurate with the rapid growth being witnessed in Abuja.

``This is due to increased business activities and massive influx of people into the FCT.

``The greater number of residents of the FCT reside outside the city centre due to the high cost of rent in the developed districts of Asokoro, Maitama, Wuse,
Jabi, Utako, among others.’’

The lawmaker expressed concern that if the requisite infrastructure were not provided, residents would continue to suffer untold hardships.
