Court Declares Collection Of Tenement Rates By AMAC, Other Area Councils in FCT Illegal


Hon. Justice Valentine Ashi at Apo High Court 28 has outlawed tenement rates in all FCT area councils.

In the case between Planned Shelter Vs AMAC and six others, the court declared as illegal the demand for tenement rates by FCT Area Councils.

The Judge in his ruling said that collection of tenement rate is illegal because there is no ACT of the National Assembly to back up its collection by AMAC and other councils within FCT.

The judgment, according to information obtained by LeadingReporters was delivered on 12th of April, 2018.
