The Edo State Government said on Tuesday that it is intensifying the removal of shopping malls, hotels and other commercial buildings erected without appropriate approvals from the relevant regulatory authorities. Reading out the riot act to residents, Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie, in a statement, said the exercise is aimed at ensuring order and sanitising the built environment space in line with the extant laws and guidelines in the state for the benefit of the generality of Edo people.

The statement reads: “The Edo State Government hereby informs the general public and property developers in particular, that government is intensifying the removal of shopping malls, hotels and other commercial buildings erected without appropriate approvals from the relevant regulatory authorities.

“The exercise is aimed at ensuring order and sanitising the built environment space, in line with the extant laws and guidelines in the state for the benefit of the generality of Edo people. In essence, all buildings and structures planned, being developed, or completed in different parts of the state without approvals, are to be discontinued and (or) removed. The same applies to such structures being embarked upon in unapproved locations across the state.

“The state government reiterates its commitment to ensuring the protection of lives and property and promotion of orderly development of the built environment for the benefit of the good people of the state”.
