Banking, hotel services disrupted as Lagos seals off property on Airport Road

Banking and hospitality services have been disrupted on the Lagos International Airport Road as the Lagos State government has sealed off some properties along the road.
Affected by the state government’s action are13 banks and and 13 hotels, among several other businesses on the road.
The properties were sealed off Wednesday evening over alleged violation of the state physical planning extant laws.
The state commissioner for physical planning and urban development, Idris Salako, ordered the sealing off of the property on the grounds that most of them either built without planning permit or built without conforming to their approval order.
According to Salako, the area being an international gateway to Lagos must not be allowed to be defaced with illegal developments, stressing that all physical developments  on the airport road and other areas of the state must conform to the extant planning laws of Lagos.
“It is by enforcing strict compliance to laws and regulations that we can halt the pervasive incidence of illegal and unapproved buildings, protect  the operative development plans of Lagos State and sustain an orderly, organised and livable environment,” he said.
Salako urged those buying or renting property to ensure that such property had planning permits and certificate of fitness for habitation in order to avoid their property being sealed.
The enforcement exercise is the continuation of the efforts commenced some weeks back to eliminate the menace of illegal buildings and sanitise the built environment of the state.
