Saraki has no title on revoked property - Kwara insists

The Chairman, Committee on  the Review of Kwara State Government Properties from 1999 to 2019, Senator Suleiman Ajadi, said on Sunday that the controversy over the reclamation of the land bordering the civil service clinic was needless.

He said the Kwara State Government had only recovered a property that originally belonged to it but was unlawfully diverted for private use.

Ajadi, who addressed journalists  in Ilorin on Sunday, explained that the Asa Investment Company owned by the late Dr Olusola Saraki never applied to the state government for allocation of the land.

He also said that neither the firm nor the  Saraki family, was issued with documents that gave it the right to occupy or erect structures on the property,  located on  plot 1,3 and 5, Civil Service Clinic, Ilofa Road, GRA, Ilorin.

Ajadi explained that he was the Commissioner for Finance and Economic Planning in the state between 1994 and 1996 when the building presently housing the Ministry of Finance was constructed.

 Ajadi,  who addressed the journalists in company with members of his committee,  described as false, the claims that the government demolished a structure belonging to the late Senator Olusola Saraki. Punch
