the Nigerian Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCDA, says it has commenced the design of four new districts in the Federal Capital City with the Abuja master plan.
The Director of Land Administration Malam Adamu Jibrin Husssaini who said this in Abuja named the districts to include Mamusa North, Mamusa East, Parfun North and Parfun South to take care of the deficit of planned plots in Abuja.
The Director who also supervised some facilities of the Abuja Geographics Information System, AGIS, Customer Service, said the inspection was to assess the staff preparedness to contain the influx of people expected to come and clear their outstanding Ground Rents and other Sundry Bills.
Malam Hussaini said the new districts with the thousands of plots to be generated would go a long way in relieving pressure on outstanding over 100,000 applications for different development purposes in the Federal Capital Territory.
“These plots would also be used to address cases of double and multiple allocations with its attendant effects of resolving outstanding litigations that would take off that burden on the FCT Administration,” he stated.
He said the FCT Administration would also use the medium to provide alternatives to people who have been allotted lands and whose titles were revoked for overriding public interest.
According to him, the detailed design of the four districts would ensure the expansion and opening up of planned districts.
“The detailed design would further ensure that the four districts are well connected with transportation network, water supply, sewerage, electrical power and telecommunication ducts, expected of modern city like Abuja”.
The Director also explained that the design of the four new districts in the Phase IV, south of the Federal Capital City, which was in consonance with the aspirations of the Abuja Master Plan would provide guidance for orderly development.
Malam Hussaini advised property owners in the territory to be responsive to clear their outstanding Ground Rents and other Sundry Bills, as government needs these funds to provide the needed infrastructure and other services.
These proposed four new districts are located in the southward end of the Federal Capital City and are bounded by Inner Southern Expressway (ISEX) to the North, Ring Road IV to the East and Outer Southern Expressway (OSEX) to the south.
