The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has called on all property owners in the territory to pay all outstanding ground rents and sundry bills before the end of February, 2019.

The FCT Director of the Abuja Geographic Information Systems (AGIS), Dr. Isa Ibrahim Jalo, made this call in his office at the weekend.

In a statement from the Information and Customer Service of AGIS and signed by Sule Haruna, Dr. Jalo said the payment of ground rent was statutory for all land and property owners and must be respected or enforced.

Dr. Jalo said there were stipulated sanctions spelt out by the law for all defaulters of such payment, including outright revocation of titles.

He warned that the law was blind and therefore not a respecter of anybody; stressing that all defaulters would face the full wrath of the law.

He said the FCTA had indeed given one month grace for all property owners in the FCT to pay all accrued ground rents and sundry bills, including arrears, to clear them forthwith.

“There is no basis for plot allottees, property owners, as well as beneficiaries of the sale of Federal Government houses in Abuja not to pay their bills because such payments are being used for infrastructural development and provision of services,” he added.
