As part of efforts to secure the lives and property of residents in the nation’s capital, the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, has banned scavengers from the refuse collection in estates within the territory.

Malam Bello, who gave the directive at the commissioning of the Cosgrove Smart Estate, Wuye, also directed all estates in the territory to deploy solar lights on their perimeter fences and along streets within estates.

He said emphasis would be placed on ensuring that estates are managed properly with greater emphasis on security and the environment.

“Our focus would be ensuring that estates are managed properly to the benefit of the residents. Accordingly, greater emphasis would be placed on security and environmental matters.

“It would be made mandatory for every estate in the FCT to deploy CCTV cameras with recording facilities and solar lights on perimeter fences and along the streets in the estates.

“Furthermore, no scavengers would be allowed to be refuse collectors within estates. Each estate would be expected to employ the services of reputable companies registered by the AEPB.

“I wish to remind estate developers that 40% of the FCT is intended to be green. This is even more critical now as we battle climate change,” the minister said.

Malam Bello congratulated Cosgrove Investment Ltd and its CEO, Umar Abdullahi, for pioneering the construction of Smart Estates in the FCT, saying the housing subsector in the FCT was the most dynamic and vibrant in the entire country.
