ABUJA: THE Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has set up a high-powered task force to stimulate all security agencies to effectively enforce all the FCT’s bylaws.
Among the regulations the taskforce would monitor include the ban on commercial motorcycles, restriction of tricycles to designated areas in the Abuja metropolis, street hawkers, beggars as well as menace of the commercial sex workers.
FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed, announced the setting up of the taskforce headed by the FCT Police Commissioner, Mbu Joseph.
The Minister also handed over 45 new operational vehicles and a Black Maria to various security agencies at Area 11, Garki I District to help in effective enforcement of laws.
Mohammed meanwhile demanded ordered all non-performing directors in the FCT administration to either resign or be sacked.
He warned Directors of Operational Departments to either “shape in or shape out.”
“Enough is enough. There are no more excuses,” he said.
He reiterated that his administration decided to revolutionalize the act of governance by carrying some members of the FCT Security Committee to assess the actual state of metropolitan services instead of taking briefs, which may not be accurate.
Mohammed emphasized that his administration had a transformational mandate from President Goodluck Jonathan to improve infrastructure and services in the entire 8 000 km2 of the FCT would ensure that.
Joseph appreciated the minister’s gesture.
He warmed that Abuja would not be a haven for criminals and law breakers.
“Criminals and law breakers should immediately move out of Abuja because they will not have any hiding place in the entire FCT,” said Joseph.
