Why We Demolished Saraki’s House-Kwara Govt

The Kwara State Government has explained why it demolished the property of late Dr Olusola Saraki popularly known as ‘Ile Arugbo’ in Ilorin.

In a terse statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor AbdulRasaq AbdulRahman, Mr. Rafiu Ajakaye, said the late Saraki’s ancestral home was in Agbaji and not the one the government demolished at the Ilorin GRA.

“The property being reclaimed by the Kwara State Government is not Saraki’s ancestral home as is being portrayed in some section of the media. Saraki’s ancestral home is in Agbaji (Ilorin) while the property at issue is used for political meetings in the heart of the GRA, Ilorin.

“The Government’s position is that the land was (and still is) a public property originally meant for the construction of Govt Secretariat, a Civil Service Clinic, and a parking lot for the two. However, ownership of the property was spuriously transfered to a private firm — and for commercial purpose — without the firm paying a kobo to the government or obtaining the Certificate of Occupancy.” The statement said.

Below is the full text of the statement.

Kwara Explains again:

The property being reclaimed by the Kwara State Government is not Saraki’s ancestral home as is being portrayed in some section of the media. Saraki’s ancestral home is in Agbaji (Ilorin) while the property at issue is used for political meetings in the heart of the GRA, Ilorin.

The Government’s position is that the land was (and still is) a public property originally meant for the construction of Govt Secretariat, a Civil Service Clinic, and a parking lot for the two. However, ownership of the property was spuriously transfered to a private firm — and for commercial purpose — without the firm paying a kobo to the government or obtaining the Certificate of Occupancy.

What the Government has done is to reclaim the land in the spirit of what it was originally meant for.

Thank you! Compliments of the season.
