A Lot of Houses in Ibeju-Lekki don’t have Approval, Lagos Commissioner Yinka Olumide

Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Oluyinka Olumide, mentioned that a whopping 80 percent of the buildings in Ibeju Lekki don’t have approval.

“Just last week Thursday and Friday, myself and the team were in the Ibeju Lekki and Epe axis and you would agree with me that anybody passing through that corridor would see a lot of estates marked. We went there, and I can tell you that from what we saw, over 80 per cent of them do not have approval.

“The procedure to get approval is first to get the planning information, as to what those areas have been zoned for. In this case, what we have is agricultural land, and people now go to their families to buy agricultural land. Of course, those lands would be sold because those families do not know the use such land would be put to.

“The next thing to do is the fence permit. If you missed the earlier information on not knowing the area zoning, at the point of getting the fence permit, you would be able to detect what the area is zoned for. After that, the layout permits a large expense of land follows,” he said.
