Fayose Gives Quit Notice To Federal Agencies In Ekiti State

By Ikenga Chronicles January 14, 2017

Governor Ayodele Fayose has on Friday, January 13 directed all President
Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government agencies occupying the Ekiti State
property to vacate or pay its rent within seven days.

Fayose gave this directive in a statement signed by his Special Assistant
on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka.

Fayose said that the state government evicted the Nigeria Security and
Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Ekiti State Command, and other federal
ministries and agencies from their various offices.

“Yearly, budgetary provisions are made for payment of rent by federal
government agencies, which has no permanent offices across the 36 states of
the federation.

“We then wonder why those that have been occupying property belonging to
the Ekiti government for over 10 years do not want to pay rent or make the
properties theirs by buying them,” Fayose said.

The governor said that some of the agencies had purchased the properties
they are occupying while others like National Population Commission had
promised to pay.

“As at today, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and
Control and National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement
Agency has already paid N5.5 million and N10.8 million respectively for
outright purchase of the property they are occupying.

“Even the NSCDC is already offering to pay N18 million instead of the N27
million it ought to pay.

“The Nigerian Prison Service, which is also occupying property valued at
N108 million is insisting that it won’t pay.

“We have given a 7-day ultimatum for all the federal agencies to purchase
the property, pay rent or quit.

“We are yet to evict them, we only gave them notice of one year and we have
now giving another seven days of grace, there is no going back,” he was
quoted in the statement.
