Chairman of the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Abdullahi Adamu Candido
The Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) has banned the use of generators otherwise called ‘I pass my neighbour’ at the Area One Shopping plaza after it provided the plaza with a 800 KVA generator.
AMAC chairman, Abdullahi Adamu Candido, said this would eliminate the excessive noise and carbon pollution generated by the traders, adding that any government that could not provide amenities for its citizens had failed.
He added that the generator would further enhance business growth in the market.
The market is among the three earmarked by the council to be managed by the AMAC Investment and Property Development Company (IPDC).
“Government belongs to the people, any government that cannot provide facilities for its citizens has failed and it cannot call itself government, therefore, it is the responsibility of the government of AMAC to do the needful and that is exactly what we have decided to do today.
“Therefore, we urge you to do the needful by supporting the council in the area of keeping the market clean, pay your dues and support the administration in the market so as to achieve peace in the market.
The council’s Head of Department of Works and Housing, Engr. Alhassan Dakwoyi, said the procurement of the generating set was to stop traders from using small generators within the complex.
