He decried that the area was becoming an eyesore in the city, as well as turning into an unhealthy environment.
Galadima told newsmen , the new FCT Minister Nyesom Wike had directed that there is no room for illegalities in the territory, while all activities must confine to the best standards.
Galadima disclosed that overtime, an over-head bridge will be constructed around the place.
“The removal of the shanties is in continuation of our commitment to keep sanity in the city and make the neighborhood and environment healthy. Kabusa is an eyesore to the city starting from the junction.”
“The place is an intersection of ring road two and the outer southern part expressway, it is a reservation for an inter-change with time there will be over head bridge that will connect ring road two and the outer southern way.”
“We are starting from this point to Galadima roundabout, when we chase out the people we will come up with a plan that will accommodate all the traders, at least we will put them in an organized manner.”
The director stressed that demolition of structures raised in areas without approval must go down for genuine infrastructural development.
