FCTA to revoke titles of abandoned building projects


The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has said it will revoke titles and prosecute any developer that occupies buildings abandoned for at least three years.
“All building projects abandoned for at least three years must not be occupied whatsoever by anybody,” the FCTA said in a publication.

“Failure to comply with the instruction and all other extant rules governing land development in the FCT by any developer will attract appropriate sanctions which shall include revocation of title and prosecution,” it said.
It said all abandoned buildings were subjected to revalidation and conduct of integrity test before recommencement of development.

“The building must be completed in line with the terms and conditions of the grant of certificate of occupancy and conveyance of building plans approval,” it added.
The directive came after an uncompleted building collapsed on Obafemi Awolowo Way, Jabi leaving two dead and several others injured. DT
