The Oyo state government has given a 30-day ultimatum to property developers in the state to pull down their illegal structures or face the wrath of the government.
Waheed Gbadamosi, director general of the Bureau of Physical Planning and Development Control, stated this in a statement issued on Tuesday.
Gbadamosi advised the people of the state to be compliant with the necessary planning laws and building instructions so as to avert any danger.
The government has also urged the people to secure building plan approvals in line with the laws of the state and federation with the Bureau and its zonal offices alone.
Gbadamosi said the task force set up by the government will soon embark on the certification of approved building plans.
“Oyo State government frowns at the development of illegal structures in the state. This is to give the developers of the illegal structures a 30-day ultimatum to pull it down,” he said.
“The compliance with this directive will be for a period of 30 days after which the offending developers with such fake papers will be dealt with in accordance with the planning laws.
“Our people should note that building plan approvals in line with the laws of the State and Federation lies with the Bureau and its zonal offices alone.
“People should stop obtaining approvals from other sources as any approval outside the bureau will be regarded as invalid.”
