This measure is intended to enhance city sanitation and address the associated problems of insecurity, according to Braimah. He pointed out that many of the people residing in the shanties lacked proper addresses and identification, which contributed to the security challenges.

“It is paramount that we scale up our efforts to achieve the objectives set out for us by the FCT Minister,” Braimah stressed.

Before embarking on the demolitions, the AEPB typically issues abatement notices to inform the affected parties. This approach ensures that property owners have an opportunity to comply with regulations and avoid the erection of illegal structures on empty plots.

The demolition of the Covid-19 market marks a significant step towards addressing security concerns in the nation’s capital, and it aligns with the broader efforts to improve the living conditions and sanitation of the city.
