40 private developers lose estates to Ogun new town scheme

40 private developers lose estates to Ogun new town scheme.. Naija Intel


A FRESH plan has been launched by the Ogun State government to reorder private estate developments along the Mowe-Ofada-Papalanto and its environs into a new town development scheme as a means to pre-empt the growing incidents of haphazard development of structures and inappropriate planning within the corridor. Under the proposed scheme, the State’s Land Bureau has began an acquisition of some of the landed property within the axis owned by individuals, communities corporate organisations and private developer to actualize its New Town Project. Essentially, the government has acquired lands stretching from Odeda, Ifo, Mowe, Ofada and Papalanto axis up to Abeokuta Exchange, where over 40 developers have their estates. The land size was put at about 37 hectares. Close on the heels of the on-going scheme, several property developers have launched estate developments along the affected areas, while some have started infrastructural works; others only have their signposts to show for years of marketing the projects. Most of the estates are sold under the site and servicesscheme. Expectedly, ripples of the effect on the proposed new town scheme would be felt by prospective homeowners, especially those who have committed their life savings on the procurement of plots in affected estates.

But the Special Adviser to Ogun State Governor, Senator IbikunleAmosun, on Land Matters, Mrs. Ronke Sokefun, who also doubled as the Director General (DG), Land Bureau, said the process is “to avoid the kind of haphazard development being witnessed along the Lagos-Shagamu expressway, with their attendant environmental and security challenges, According to her, government embarked on the new town project in the Papalanto axis, ostensibly to harmonise the existing infrastructure and correct to anomalies therein there would be the need for ratification exercise to know the affected estates and those to be incorporated into the scheme while compensation would be paid to those whose property would need to give way, “provided they have the necessary documents.”
