Abuja: FCTA stops Tenement Rates collection

The Federal Capital Territory Administrationa��, FCTA,a�� has approved the temporary suspension of Tenement Rates collection in the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

The directive to this effect was contained in a circular signed by the FCT Permanent Secretary, Babatope Ajakaiye.

According to the circular, the suspension was necessitated by the need to sanitize and streamline the Tenement Rates collection process, as well as ensure compliance with relevant provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Ajakaiye drew attention to the constitutional responsibility of the National Assembly to prescribe rates to be paid on tenements in the FCT and disclosed that the FCTA was liaising with the legislative body for the enactment of the requisite Act.

He noted that the process of property valuation and gazetting at the FCT Administration and FCT Area Council levels was ongoing, while submissions from the Area Councils were being collated for onward transmission to the National Assembly.

a�?This suspension is also in consonance with a resolution of the House of Representatives on the matter and decisions reached at a subsequent meeting with the leadership of the House Committee on FCT, held on Monday, 31stOctober, 2016, which are deemed to remain in force until the National Assembly concludes the enactment of the requisite legislationa�?, the circular stated.
