Reps Probes Infrastructure Decay In FCT


Nigeria’s house of representatives has asked its committees on federal capital territory, FCT area councils and ancillary matters to investigate the decay in infrastructural facilities in the FCT and it’s environs.

The committees were mandated to find out how best the problem of infrastructure decay in the FCT can be addressed. The lawmakers noted that the decay was occasioned by years of neglect in the maintenance of those facilities by relevant agencies as well as criminal activities of vandals.

As a result of the state of the facilities, especially the absence of streetlights, there has been an upsurge in crimes in the FCT.
