The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has said that as
workers prepare to resume work after the Easter holidays, some government offices, hotels, and other public business centres may be under lock and keys due to debts owed to the Abuja Environmental Protection Board, AEPB.
AEPB said a Task Team has been set up by the FCTA to recover over
N10billion owed by several government agencies, business
organisations, and residential apartments in the FCT.
It said the Task Team has been mandated to apply all legal means to
recover the huge sums of money from the debtors, adding that the debts
accrued over time due to the failure of those concerned to pay for
services rendered to them by the AEPB.
It said beginning from 5:30am on Tuesday, April 19, based on a court
order already obtained by the AEPB, the Task Team will embark on
mass seal-up of such facilities to recover the huge money being owed.
