FCTA bans rearing of cows, other livestock in Abuja residential areas

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Thursday banned the rearing of livestock within residential areas in Abuja.

The Director, Department of Monitoring and Inspection, Aisha Bello, gave the instruction during a joint monitoring exercise with relevant departments and agencies.

The official also warned residents must stop the act of indiscriminate waste disposal and cutting of trees.

Represented by Omotayo Ogunkuade, Head of Feedback and Implementation, Bello told residents to be mindful of the effects of climate change.

She advised residents to liaise with the Department of Parks And Recreation to ensure that overgrown trees are pruned to avoid falling on houses, cars and electrical equipment during storms.

The monitoring team, at the Jabi Mall side of the Lake, observed that it was littered with waste.

The managers of Shoprite were directed to ensure that their surroundings are clean at all times.

The team, at the Kubwa Railway Station, condemned vandalism by hoodlums and dumping of refuse along the Idu-Kubwa Railway corridor.

The team suggested that environmental health officials partner with the railway authorities to sensitise the community.

NAN reports that the Abuja Environmental Protection Board, Satellite Town Development Department, Area Council Service Secretariat, Abuja Municipal Area Council, and Transportation Secretariat took part in the exercise.
