The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday ordered the demolition of the state lodge in Abuja.
It was gathered that the demolition of the house which is located in the Asokoro area of the Federal Capital Territory was effected on Thursday afternoon.
The spokesman to the Governor, Taiwo Adisa, while speaking with Daily Post, noted that the statehouse is undergoing remodelling, he added that the building is old needed to be renovated.
Adisa said, “What I was telling you is that your people in Abuja can really go there and ask whoever is demolishing what happened.”
“They will meet workers and they will ask the workers what happened why you are demolishing a part of the building. Or the person that posted the picture. Is he not a journalist? If he is not a journalist, you have to have a story to tell before they can post the pictures around it.”
“But, in any case, they are renovating, there is a contract for the remodelling of the office which the contractor is working on. So, when they see a portion of the house that does not conform with the building they can remodel it. But, there is a project for the remodelling of the building.”
“The building has been approved for remodelling by the Oyo State Government. That is the process that you are seeing there.”
