Many banks, buildings sealed along Airport road by Lagos govt as it gives reason
The Physical Planning and Urban Development Ministry of The Lagos State has sealed 43 buildings on Airport Road.
Dr Idris Salako, the Commissioner of the ministry, while supervising the exercise, said the buildings were sealed for violating the physical planning laws, NAN reports.
The Commissioner while explaining said most of the buildings affected, including 13 banks and 13 hotels, were either built without planning permits or conformity to approval orders.
He stated that the area is an international gateway to Lagos State and therefore must not be defaced with illegal developments.
According to him, “It is by enforcing strict compliance to planning laws and regulations that we can halt the pervasive incidence of illegal and unapproved buildings, protect the Operative Development Plans of Lagos State,” he added.
Dr. Salako further advised those buying or renting property to ensure that they obtain planning permits and Certificate of Fitness for habitation in order to avoid being sealed.
