The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Administration has blamed the delay in the commencement of the Kukwaba train station operation on the refusal of occupants of illegal structures around the corridor of the rail line to vacate the area.

The Senior Special Assistant (Designate) to FCT Minister on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement, Ikharo Attah, stated this when he led an exercise for the removal of over 100 illegal buildings obstructing road construction leading to Kukwaba II train station, in Karon-Majigi.

 While reiterating the commitment of the administration towards infrastructural development, he warned that every illegal structure standing on the way of any project would be demolished at the owner's peril.

Attah noted that the Kukwaba train station had been completed long ago and ready for use, but the occupants of the illegal structures had refused to vacate the area, thereby slowing the road construction project.
