Benue Government To Demolish 300 Houses in Makurdi


No less than 300 houses have been marked for demolition in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, for apparently contradicting urban development law.

General Manager of Benue State Urban Development Board, (UDB), Abraham Saint Gbileeka, who made this divulgence, on Thursday, in a talk with newsmen, clarified that a large portion of the influenced structures were based on water channels.

"The facts confirm that individuals are expanding on water channels and it is our duty as a Board to stop them. The main weapon we have as a board is basic.

"When we find that you have gotten an authentic endorsement from the Board and you have proceeded to construct, we serve you an abetment see which will prompt obliteration.

"In view of that, we have just reserved more than 300 houses for destruction in Makurdi alone. A large portion of these structures are based on conduits. 90% of them don't have government endorsement."

The UDB supervisor who, in any case, placed that denoting a house does not really mean it had been reserved for destruction, clarified that occasionally, houses were checked in light of the fact that they don't have any record with the Board.

"Here and there, a few houses are stamped in light of the fact that the proprietors of the structure probably won't have enrolled formally with us. Also, the minute the proprietor formalizes the game plan with us, that stamp will be wiped off.

"Furthermore, if your structure is set apart for devastation perhaps in light of the fact that you based on water channel, regardless of whether it is endorsed or not affirmed, when we are doing annihilation, we will positively decimate it.
"Thus, one reason why these things are going on along these lines is on the grounds that a few people get a kick out of the chance to compromise in all things. A few people will go to the field and issue illicit endorsements and after that leave."
