Two new buildings allegedly owned by former Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has been sealed by agents of the state government.
The state government through the Ministry of Housing, Urban and Physical Development, said the twin duplexes were sealed for lack of approved plan and permit. The buildings, which are adjacent the official residence of the Deputy Governor, are located in the Government Reservation Area (GRA), Ado-Ekiti within the precincts of the Government House. The contractor handling the project began work about four months ago after the buildings erected on the plot were pulled down to give way for the new structures.
The seal shutting down the buildings was signed by the Director of Urban and Regional Planning in the Ministry of Housing, Urban and Physical Development. The document reads:
“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.”
In his response to the sealing of the buildings in Ado-Ekiti, Fayose accused Governor Kayode Fayemi of vendetta and desperation. Speaking through his media aide, Idowu Adelusi, Fayose denied ownership of the buildings in question urging the state government to provide evidence to prove his ownership of the property.
