Governor Akinwunmi #Ambode of Lagos State has assured residents whose property encroaches on the land of the Lagos State University, Ojo, that such buildings will not be demolished.

Ambode gave the assurance on Tuesday during a stakeholders’ meeting between #LASU management team and the affected communities.

The governor, who was represented at the meeting by the state Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat #Adebule , stated that the interest of members of the public would continue to be his administration’s top priority.

The governor lamented that the landlords were deceived by land speculators (omo onile) to encroach on the land belonging to LASU.

“However, government will not demolish your houses; rather, we will find amicable resolution that will promote peace,’’ he added.

The #Ojo community, which spoke through the Baale of #IgboElerin town, Alhaji Aina Taofeek, urged the state to consider their poor economic condition while determining what to pay for the land.

“Every discussion on the land should be between the state government and the landlords. We don’t want to be tenants to LASU,” he said.

LASU Vice Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju #Fagbohun , noted the university authorities were willing to discuss with the concerned landlords to resolve the matter amicably.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Obafela #Bank-Olemoh , said the government called the meeting to make a joint decision that would promote peace.
