FCTA To Enforce Noise Pollution Law Against Hotels, Night Clubs, Bars Owners

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) in Nigeria has said it will soon commence enforcement of the law against noise pollution by hotels, restaurants, night clubs, and bars, by going out on night patrols to ensure that the laws are adhered to.

The Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Umar Shuaibu who made this known during a meeting with owners of nightclubs, restaurants, and bars, told the owners that if they are operating according to the rules, they have no reason to fear.

This Coordinator explained that they were not out to victimize anybody, but that their interest is to safeguard public sanity, safety, security and that everybody has rights, so they must protect everybody’s rights.

Also, the Director of Development Control Muktar Galadima, stressed that people must respect the Abuja Master plan and standard, saying that the rules and regulations guiding development in the FCT are sacrosanct.

He further hinted that, “We are building this city, not for ourselves but generations unborn. We recognized the fact that you are part of the development of the city, but your development should not be to the detriment of the people. If any of your clubs is found wanting, we will seal up the place.

The Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection, and Enforcement to the FCT Minister, Ikharo Attah, warned operators of restaurants and bars to resist the temptation to block the roads they operate on, that if they do not take correction, they will have no option but to seal up the place.
