Recall that in 2017, some hoteliers and residents in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, raised concerns over noise pollution from night clubs.
They called on the Abuja Environmental and Protection Board, AEPB, to wake up to their responsibility of controlling noise pollution in the territory.
Those who spoke to News Agency of Nigeria, said that the AEPB should live up to their responsibilities and address the situation.
Tomi Akingbogun, the managing Director of Hotel Rosebud said that the uncontrollable noise from some of these night clubs in Garki, Area 11 was negatively affecting the hospitality business.
Mr. Akingbogun said that during the previous FCT administration, noise pollution was checkmated adding that the relevant laws were relatively applied.
“But it seems like most of the achievements of the past have been thrown into the dustbin.
“A situation where your neighbour makes so much noise to a point where your own business is losing should not be allowed.
“When those operating these clubs play their music so loud from 9pm to 4am daily, you can imagine what the guests and residents are passing through every night.
“Several complaints have been made to AEPB, but the leadership of the board are not just interested,” Mr. Akingbogun alleged.
