Buildings Linked To Fayose Sealed By Ekiti Govt



Ekiti State government on Friday, sealed off two buildings allegedly owned by the immediate past governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, for lack of approved plan and permit.

The construction of the buildings, according to the state’s Ministry of Housing, Physical Planning and Urban Development, contravenes the laws guiding urban renewal regulations in the state government.

The twin-duplexes in question, with elevated fence, covering about three plots of land, are located at the Government Reservation Area (GRA) in Ado Ekiti.

A visit by journalist to the building on Friday, revealed a building under lock and key with no contractor or construction worker on site. There was however, a document, dated October 18, which was attached to the gate and signed by the director of Urban and Regional Planning in the ministry said.

The content of the document enumerated the reason for sealing the property.

“It was discovered during inspection by the inspectorate staff of our ministry that a residential building by you, at GRA, has no approved plan /permit for the site or bring same to our office to get certification for the erection.

“You are hereby ordered to suspend the use of the building premises until approved plan is submitted for clearance,’’ it said.

Works on the buildings had started about four months ago after the buildings erected on the land were pulled down to give way for the new edifices.
