Oyo Governor, Ajimobi, promises compensation for demolished structures

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state

Residents of Iseyin visited the Oyo Governor.

The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on Friday, pledged to compensate owners of structures demolished to allow for the expansion and dualisation of some roads in the state.

Mr. Ajimobi made the promise when some indigenes of Iseyin community paid him a courtesy visit on Friday.

He urged the owners of the demolished structure to make themselves available for an ongoing verification exercise so as to ensure prompt and adequate payment of compensation.

The visitors, led by the town’s monarch- Aseyin of Iseyin, AbdulGaniyu Saliu, said they decided to pay the governor a visit in order to acknowledge the “good work” he has been doing in the state.

Mr. Ajimobi commended the monarch for the visit and said that his administration will strive to make life meaningful for the people of the state through the execution of development projects.

He also called on residents and indigenes from other parts of the state to follow suit and stressed the need for religious tolerance. The governor said his administration will not allow anyone of group of persons to impose their belief on others.

The state government’s effort at dualising some roads as part of its urban renewal project has led to the demolition of some structures across the state.

The governor had said the dualisation of Iseyin township road in particular, is in fulfillment of his administration’s promise to provide motorable roads and give all entrances to major cities in the state a facelift.
