FCTA lost N500m revenue to illegal masts towers – DOAS

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), has lost over N500 million in revenue to illegally erected masts, and towers in the nation’s capital.

This was disclosed on Thursday in Abuja by the Director of the Department of Outdoor Advertisement and Signage, DOAS, Dr Babagana Adams, during an interaction with Journalists on Thursday.

He said three thousand and fifty masts in Abuja had no genuine approval by DOAS.

He added that only 320 masts in the city have approvals.

The director vowed to clamp down on illegal masts and towers in a bid to sanitize the city.

Mr Adams revealed that some companies only pay for permits and refuse to pay the processing fee of one million five hundred thousand naira and go ahead to erect their masts and towers, which he described as illegal arrangements.

He said: “We have lost about five million naira in revenue to illegal masts and towers in the territory”.
