NIGERIA: Abuja’s FCT Parking Fee Extortion Racket

Parking Fee Extortion

Numerous motorists in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, have described the park and pay policy recently introduced by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) as a form of extortion. “It’s as if the government wants to rob average motorists of their hard-earned income and to further impoverish them,” one critic said.

Under the policy, an average motorist in Abuja is to pay parking fees of N14,300 each month, and ultimately N171,600 in a year as parking fees.

Photos taken at different times shows the dubious means employed by the FCT administration to extort motorists at the federal capital Abuja.
