FCT Park And Pay Policy will guard against car thieves -AMAC

By Solomon Onyilo 

The Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) said the newly announced pay and park policy in the Federal Capital Territory(FCT) would guard against car theft and other vices.

The Chairman of AMAC, Hon. Christopher Zakka Maikalangu, who announced the policy at the council secretariat, said the council targets revenue generation with a human face.

Maikalangu who was represented by the supervisory councilor for special duties, Mr. Emmanuel Inyang, said motorists would pay N100 per hour in designated areas including Asokoro, Maitama, Federal Secretariat, and other areas within the city center that are under Wuse and Garki districts.

“After our last engagement with the media, we decided to address the press again today to abreast them on developments between the Abuja Municipal Area Council and the FCT IRS. We are pleased to announce that the FCT IRS has retracted its statement and action regarding revenue generation in AMAC.

“The FCT IRS has served AMAC and all the organizations they hitherto served demand notices. FCT IRS apologized to the council over the demand notices to different organizations within AMAC, saying it was an error. We have accepted the apology, hence this engagement with the media to update them on developments since the last media briefing,” he said.
