In a bid to enhance a befitting outlook and construct world-class markets within the Abuja metropolis to the satisfaction of both domestic and foreign customers, Abuja Investment Company Limited (AICL) has partnered Urban Shelter – a popular developer on the redevelopment of UTC and Area 7 shopping complex.
Speaking during the inauguration at the AICL boardroom in Abuja, Abubakar Paye, group managing director, and chief executive officer of the organisation, said the essence of inaugurating the central committee is to reposition the two markets with the necessary facilities that will attract more customers.
Paye disclosed that the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has directed AICL to redevelop the markets into a modern standard because both UTC shopping Complex and Garki Area 7 market are located in the heart of the metropolis
“We’re inaugurating this committee to ensure high-level cooperation that will capture the interest of every trader in the market for better atmospheric business activities.
“We will ensure the quality of the projects without compromising so that visitors to the markets will appreciate the environment and we want to assure all stakeholders to dialogue when necessary as this will benefit everybody”, he said.
Francis Olorunfemi, general manager of corporate services, Urban Shelter, taxed the members of the inaugurated team on a collaborative approach, adding that the firm was open to dialogue with traders to achieve beneficial structures for the markets.
“When there is confusion always open up and we will surely resolve whatever complaints from the traders amicably. We are lucky to be the most preferred developer of the UTC shopping Complex and Area 7 market. We are pledging to deliver beyond expectation as we have done it before in many edifices.
“We are the one that developed the popular Garki Ultra Modern Market and people are happy with the work there. We are also the one developing the Apo Market settlement which we are partnering with AMAC and its ongoing success to handover by this year ending”, Olorunfemi said.
