The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Wednesday banned the activities of illegal Point of Sales (POS) operators by roadsides and unapproved places on the streets of the nation's capital.
The Coordinator of the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, Umar Shuaibu, said the move became necessary to address insecurity associated with the activities.
He noted that while the administration was not completely against POS business in Abuja, indiscriminate operatiions and creating nuisance on Abuja streets and roads violate environmental rules.
