FCTA DECLARES TRADEMORE ESTATE LUGBE DISASTER ZONE.

The Federal Capital Territory Administration, (FCTA), has declared the Trademore Estate, LUGBE a disaster zone.
The Permanent Secretary of the FCTA, Mr Olusade Adesola announced the decision after a tour of the estate which suffered devastating floods last week Friday.

  1. In a statement in Abuja, the Director General of the FCT Emergency Management Agency, Dr Abbas Garba Idriss said, the decision followed the consistent and persistent threat to life from flooding at the Estate.
    ” It is expected that whoever resides in the estate should relocate to a safer place. The Federal Capital Territory Administration has placed a high premium on the lives and properties of the residents of the Estate, hence the reason for declaring the Estate a Disaster Zone.
  2. Idriss explained that the decision to declare Trademore Estate as a Disaster Zone is to save lives and properties as more rain is expected this year in Abuja.
  3. While commiserating with the people affected by the floods, Dr Idriss advised the residents of the FCT to always adhere to early warnings and avoid any act that could lead to flooding in the FCT.
  4. The Executive Secretary of Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Director General FEMA, FCT Commissioner of Police, Commandant, of Nigerian Security & Civil Defence Corps, Director, of the Department of Development Control and other Heads of Agencies and Departments of the FCTA & FCDA, were on the Permanent Secretary’s entourage.
