Stop Erecting Shanties-Ogun Govt.Reads Riot-Act To Traders

For the umpteenth time, the Ogun State Government has read a Riot-act to traders over  erection of shanties , insisting that it will not condone any haphazard physical development along the Abeokuta-Sagamu expressway.

The State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Town Planner Tunji Odunlami gave the warning in Abeokuta, during a meeting with owners of shanties and illegal shops erected along Presidential Boulevard, Oke-Mosan near Governor’s office

According to him, "government will not condone indiscriminate erection of structures on setbacks, capable of distorting layout of the area".

Odunlami who was represented by the Acting General Manager, Planning and Development Permit Authority, Tpl. Kolawole Ogun, noted that the act had  necessitated the Ministry to embark on immediate removal and upgrading of the zone, instructing them to vacate with immediate effect, urging those involved to desist forthwith.

 He stressed that the Agency would not relent in its sensitisation and enforcement drive, towards ensuring that developers build right by obtaining necessary approvals at every stage of their building projects.
