Governor Dapo Abiodun

The Ogun State government says it would soon commence the demolition of all illegal building structures without necessary documentation and punish anyone that contravene the extant law guiding building construction across the state

It therefore advised all building owners to regularise their papers before the commencement of the demolition exercise

The state Governor, prince dapo Abiodun while reacting to the demolition of DATKEM plaza in ijebu-ode after the inspection of the 8 kilometres Mowe-Ofada Road in Obafemi Owode local government area this monday said that the ministry of physical planning and urban development would soon carryout full enumeration of all buildings in the state in order to reduce building collapse that may lead to loss of lives and properties

The governor noted that there are rules and regulations warehoused by the ministry for erection of buildings in the state which must be followed by every individual warning that any building owner that violate the law would be dealt with accordingly as government would not fold its arm and allow illegality

Governor Abiodun informed that the accusation of his administration of being vindictive over the demolition of the DATKEM building by the owner was baseless and unfounded as proper documentation wasnot procured stating that the Ministry overseeing the sector several times alerted the owner of the building to regularise their papers in conformity with the state law without response

While pointing out that nobody is above the law in the state, Mr governor assured that the current administration would continue to be fair, equity , transparent, and be guided by the rule of law in its action

On mowe-ofada Road, Governor Abiodun assured that the road would be ready for commissioning before the end of October

The governor who explained that the reason behind the inspection was to ascertain the level of job done by the contractor handling the project informed that the ongoing reconstruction of the road was infulfilment of the promise made to the people of the state to complete all inherited projects that have socio-economic benefits to the people

He described the road as an important one due to its economic values as it links the largest local government in the state to Lagos

While promising the residents of more infrastructural amenities, the governor directed that the three kilometre ,Adesan Street, should also be completed alongside mowe-ofada Road to improve on the living standard of the people within the vicinity
