-FCDA’s Acting Executive Secretary
Certainly, the last has not been heard of the flooding that occurred last week in Abuja as the FCDA will report all professionals who may have compromised standards to their respective regulatory bodies for appropriate sanctions.
It would be recalled that following a heavy down-pour, there was a flooding in River Park and Trademore Estates on the Lugbe axis of Abuja along the Airport Road in which four persons were feared dead and property worth millions of Naira destroyed.
The Acting Executive Secretary of the FCDA, Tpl. Zaliha’u Ahmed made this known when she received the National President of the Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP), Tpl. Olutoyin Ayinde and the President of Town Planners Registration Council of Nigeria (TOPREC), Tpl. Isyaku Muktar Kura on a courtesy visit to her office today, Friday, September 17, 2021.

In her words, “I assure you, I will make everything possible to investigate and both TOPREC and NITP together with all other professional bodies will get the report. I assure you that any professional involved, not only the Planners, even other professions, I will make sure that their regulatory bodies are given the report so that we will forestall and save lives and property moving forward.
