FCT-ABUJAIn a bid to exterminate rodents and minimize any possibility of Lassa fever outbreak in the Federal Capital Territory, the FCT Administration has concluded plans to fumigate the entire Territory.
The action would go a long way in improving the environment and reduce the incidences of avoidable diseases, the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello said.
Speaking on Friday through his media team during an interactive session with members of the FCT Press Corps in Abuja, the minister further disclosed that the FCTA had recently cleared outstanding debt of over N250 million owed the cleaning and security contractors working in the FCT District and General Hospitals; adding that the debt cleared was for services provided for up to December 2015.
According to Bello, the FCTA has equally extended the services of those contractors to December 2016 to allow for effective room to plan for new engagement as from 2017 fiscal year.
On Avian Influenza, he revealed that the Administration has been able to stamp out the bird flu as there was no new reported case since February 9.
