‘How FG can address security challenges in FCT’

As Nigeria battles various forms of security challenges, Chukwuemeka Okoye, the Managing Director of Vegas Homes, a real estate hub in Abuja, has advised the Federal Government of Nigeria to consider accessible road networks and other infrastructure development in the Federal Capital Territory. 

Okoye spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.

“One thing that has made FCT very attractive all these years was the top-notch security advantage which is now a far cry from what it once was. Most of which happens where the roads have failed.

“Right now, you can drive 10 minutes conveniently to the office from most of the new layouts close to the FCT but not from around the farther areas around the outskirts. This is very important because a lot of those houses and layouts without good road networks are easy prey for armed robbery attacks because there are no road networks to catch up with them due to the bad roads.’’

“Wike’s coming has brought a lot of hope to the business; he has promised all lands in Abuja will have Certificate of Occupancy; and a lot of impactful changes he has already made. I believe he will do more to check the security concerns in Abuja.”

He added that the move would bring more development to Abuja and decongest cities like Lagos and surrounding cities; thereby, making FCT the biggest real estate hub in Nigeria.
