Abuja Authorities Announce Plans To Remove Churches From Residential Areas

Top Abuja management council, The Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC) Coordinator, Umar Shuaibu has announced its move to remove worship centers from residential areas in the city to reduce the noise pollution problem in the Federal Capital territory.
Umar made the announcement at a news briefing on Friday. He said: “The council has observed the increasing trend of conversion of residential buildings to lounge/night clubs and has taken several steps to address the situation. This is in recognition of the fact that the implications are beyond noise nuisance, and also include intractable traffic challenges within the precinct.”
There is also negative social influence on the psyche of the youth resident in the area where these lounges are located. We also ordered the demolition of Lounges located at Kampala Street Cadastral Zone A08, also at Wuse 2 District. As a follow-up to this, and in order to ensure inclusionary governance process to address this city management challenges, a meeting was convened on the instruction of the FCTA with majority of the night club operators.”
