The Abuja Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, (ARDS) has marked Kugbo as its standard site for livestock market.
This is coming barely 24 hours after the sack of illegal structures and businesses in the area.
The Secretary, Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, Abubakar Ibrahim who disclosed this on Monday, noted that the administration is determined to improve the facilities and services of the various livestock markets to standards befitting the status of the FCT.
According to him, the activities of illegal squatters and businesses at the Kugbo market have for long hindered efforts by the Secretariat to organise the market for the conduct of livestock business.
Abubakar, therefore, commended the Senior Special Assistant to the FCT Minister on Monitoring Inspection and Enforcement, Ikharo Attah for the successful removal of illegal structures at the market.
He added that the Secretariat will immediately take possession of the land to ensure that the illegal operators do not return to the site.
