The coordinator of the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, Felix Obuah, has lambasted streetlight contractors over their failure to ensure the lights work across the capital city.

Expressing his dissatisfaction after a meeting with the street light contractors, Obuah vowed that the FCT Administration will not renew any contractual relationship with a defaulting company

He lamented the continued darkness in almost all the districts of the territory.

“I am not impressed with the way you have handled the maintenance and security aspects of these contracts,” he said.

"I'm aware that this contract is for maintenance and security of street lights.

“But I have personally moved around your areas of operation and I can say that the city is dark, that is to say, that the request for your payment has been processed and done, yet your work is not being done perfectly as agreed.

“Why must we continue to patronize and pay you when the job is not being done? This is unacceptable.”

The coordinator also complained about vandalism of streetlights in the FCT.
