| Politics / Re: Aregbesola, Others Battle LASG Estate Residents Over Land by salaksmana(m): 11:32pm On Oct 07|
Muyideen, who explained that the estate also served as staff quarters to workers of the Lagos State University College of Medicine, said three other blocks were occupied by people whose lands were taken over by the government.http://www.punchng.com/metro-plus/aregbesola-others-battle-lasg-estate-residents-over-land/
He said all the occupants of the estate had their valid documents, wondering why the government had refused to confront the hoodlums headlong.
Muyiwa said, “The question we want to ask is, do they really have a judgment giving them ownership of this land? If yes, why has the government failed to act on our behalf because we bought the land from it?
“Why is it that after writing so many letters, nothing has been done? To what extent is the governor of Osun State involved because his name is clearly stated in the suit?”
An aged woman, Ramota Noah, who claimed to be among those resettled by the government, implored the state Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, to defend them.
“Do they want to throw me out at my age? It has been up to eight years that Fashola brought us here after Tinubu removed us from our property which they used to build a plaza.
“It was because the government demolished our houses and resettled us here that we have found ourselves here. We all have our documents,” she said.
A solicitor for one of the applicants, when contacted on the telephone, toldPUNCH Metrothat he never used any hoodlums to take possession of the property.
He said he was acting on behalf of his client who had a court judgement which gave him ownership of the property.
He said, “It is just a hearsay. I am not using any hoodlums. If you have seen a copy of the court judgment, then you will understand better. I will not say more than that.”
Our correspondent could not get a reaction from the Lagos State Government as nobody was ready to talk about the incident in the Ministry of Housing.
The spokesperson for the Osun State Governor, Semiu Okanlawon, promised to get back to our correspondent, but had yet to do so.
| Politics / Aregbesola, Others Battle LASG Estate Residents Over Land by salaksmana(m): 11:31pm On Oct 07|
Residents of Millennium Estate, Shasha, in the Egbeda area of Lagos State are no longer at ease.
On October 1, they woke up to hear the tumults of some suspected hoodlums, who laid siege to the estate and threatened to demolish the houses there.
The residents toldPUNCH Metrothat the gun-trotting men said they were acting on a court order which gave ownership of the estate to 10 persons, including the Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola.
Our correspondent was told that it took the intervention of policemen from the Shasha Police Division, Afonka, to forestall a breakdown of law and order.
The security guard at the gate was said to have fled his duty post and run to the station as soon as the hoodlums threatened mayhem.
The Chairman of the estate, Femi Ajetunmobi, told our correspondent that he bought his flat through the housing scheme of a former state governor, Bola Tinubu, in 2008.
He said he later moved in in December 2009, adding that there had never been any cause for alarm until December 2014.
“Trouble started last year when some people sent a letter to us, saying we should come to their office with our land document, because they had won a court case which gave them the estate’s land.
“We wrote to the Lagos State Ministry of Housing on the letter, and the government replied the lawyer on our behalf. We thought that was the end.
“In May 2015, the lawyer wrote us again, and we forwarded his letter to the ministry.”
He said on October 1, some hoodlums allegedly stormed the estate.
“They began to write ‘possession taken’ on the walls of the houses in the estate.
“We repelled them and reported to policemen at the Shasha division. But they gave us a copy of a court judgement which gave them ownership of the land.
[/media-credit] The estate; inset: the letter
“We thought that would be the end, but on Saturday afternoon, October 3, after we met the DPO, they came and said they would eject us by force.
“They were about 30 to 40 in number and they were fully armed; they were not policemen. They didn’t allow anybody to move out or into the estate. They wrote a contact number on the wall that we should call them. We are afraid for our lives.”
Our correspondent was shown a copy of the judgment of a Federal High Court, dated February 26, 2014.
The judgment listed 10 persons, including Aregbesola, as the applicants, while the Inspector General of Police, the Deputy Inspector General of Police, the Commissioner of Police, a former Lagos Governor, Babatunde Fashola, among five others, as respondents.
The judgment, signed by the Assistant Registrar of the Federal High Court, E.O. Adaka, said the court approved an ex parte motion ordering the police to give policemen to the bailiffs to enforce another judgment dated January 31, 2014.
A letter dated October 28, 2014, from one of the solicitors to the applicants, said the residents should present their documents.
The letter said, “Our client has instructed us to demand your documents in respect of the piece of land being occupied by you and such documents should be forwarded to our chambers within seven days from the service of this letter.
“Further to the above, we have been instructed to demand that any further dealing with other person in relation to this property should cease.
“…in the event of your not complying with our client’s instructions, you are required to give vacant possession of land you occupy on or before November 11, 2014.”
The residents had written three separate letters to the Ministry of Housing and the state governor, dated November 4, 2014; May 7, 2015; and October 1, 2015, claiming threat to lives and property.
The Ministry, in turn, had replied the solicitor on June 2, 2015, saying, “You are advised to desist from acts of intimidation on lawful residents of the estate…”
But despite the exchange of correspondence, the residents of the Millennium Estate said they had no rest as the hoodlums had threatened to break into their homes.
They said they had stopped using one of their two gates, due to fear of attacks.
The General Secretary of the community, Salawu Muyideen, said he believed the hoodlums had the backing of some “powerful people” in the society.
He said, “There is a fenced property beside us, which was supposed to be the phase 2 of this place. In fact, construction works had started and structures erected, when these men wrote ‘possession taken’ on the walls last year.
“Later, they demolished all the structures. They turned the place into their den. From there, they attacked residents and robbed passersby.
“It was after they succeeded there that they decided to extend their territory here.”

| Politics / Unpaid Salaries: Students Hold Osun Deputy Governor Hostage by salaksmana(m): 12:06am On Sep 22|
Students of tertiary institutions owned by Osun State Government on Monday staged a massive protest in Osogbo against the prolonged strike by their lecturers.http://www.punchng.com/news/unpaid-salaries-students-protest-paralyse-activities-at-osun-secretariat/
The lecturers in four state-owened institutions embarked on an indefinite strike over three months ago as a result of unpaid salaries, inadequate staff and non remittance of their pension deduction made by the state government to the retirement savings accounts.
The students, mostly from Osun State Polytechnic, Iree; Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke; Colleges of Education in Ila and Ilesa, started the protest from Olaiya and trekked to Abere, the State Secretariat singing anti-government songs.
The students had laid siege to the main gate of the state secretariat after they arrived there at around 11am.
At around 12:50pm, the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Titi Laoye-Tomori, was driven to the secretariat but the students prevented her convoy from gaining entry.
Some of the students laid on the ground in front of her car and some laid at the back making it difficult for the deputy to go inside or to turn back.
All efforts made by Laoye-Tomori to pacify the irate students failed as they held her hostage in their midst.
Some of the students had earlier manhandled the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mr. Lawrence Oyeniran, by poking his stomach and making jest of him.
The Chairman, National Association of Nigerian Students, Osun State, Mr. Lukman Adekitan, said the students were tired of staying at home due to the strike in the four institutions.
He called on Governor Rauf Aregbesola to addressed the issues raised by the lecturers, saying students of the affected schools have wasted a lot of time due to incessant strikes.

| Politics / Prepare For Hard Times, APC Tells Osun Residents by salaksmana(m): 7:50am On Sep 20|
These people still blaming PDP, idiots
The All Progressives Congress has advised the people of Osun State to brace up for austerity measures as the only way out of the economic crisis facing the state.SOURCE
The Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy of the APC in Osun State, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, gave this advice in a statement made available to our correspondent in Osogbo on Saturday, while congratulating the labour unions and the state government for finally resolving the salary impasse.
The APC attributed the economic crisis in the country to the alleged 16-year misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government.
He said “This will take a lot of sacrifice and belt tightening to fix. Every citizen must be prepared to experience one form of austerity or the other in the meantime if we are to expeditiously overcome the damage done by the PDP to the nation’s economy. Something has to give way for better things to happen.
“It is not the government that will bear the brunt alone, the people should be prepared to share in making sacrifices, so that we can build a future for our children.”
The ruling party in the state blamed the PDP for the inability of the state to pay workers for many months, saying the opposition party orchestrated the attacks against the government to discredit it.
He said further, “Of the number of states in the country where this same crisis persisted, it was only in Osun that a satanic twist was orchestrated by the PDP to magnify the sad event. This is because desperate politicians murderously seeking power will stop at nothing to exploit people’s misfortune for their selfish political ambition.”
But the opposition party has said they would not stop criticising the alleged maladministration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s administration.
The Director of Media, Publicity and Strategy of the PDP in Osun State, Mr. Diran Odeyemi, when contacted by our correspondent, said the criticisms against Aregbesola were more severe than in other states because the governor was the only one involved in reckless spending with impunity.
The PDP said the ruling party’s advice was a confirmation that Aregbesola was planning to retrench workers and to impose heavy taxes on the people.
He said, “Rather than prove us wrong, the APC has just corroborated our position that it has lost focus and cannot bring smiles to the faces of the people but hardship.
“It is sad that a government that promised workers good welfare packages during campaign would withhold their salaries for nine months and when given bailout by the FG, would fix it in a bank and embark on series of tactics to delay payment.
“We are aware of what hardship the party is promising the people of the state and they are heavy taxation, retrenchment, introduction of school fees and further delay in salary payment.’’

| Politics / Osun Deputy Governor Not Dead, Says Aide by salaksmana(m): 7:28pm On Sep 17|
Iya went on leave. Who leave their office for leave when things are practically "upsidedown". Continue deceiving yourself and your followers
Osun State Government has debunked the rumoured death of the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Titi Laoye-Tomori.SOURCE
The rumour of Laoye-Tomori’s death spread round the state on Wednesday morning but one of her aides, Mr. Gboyega Labiran, told our correspondent on the telephone that his boss was alive.
He said the deputy governor had not gone on annual leave since the administration came into office in the state.
Labiran, who is a Special Assistant, Media and Public Relations, Office of the Deputy Governor, later issued a statement to debunk the rumour.
The statement read, “Contrary to rumours making the rounds about the state of health of Osun Deputy Governor, Mrs Titi Laoye-Tomori, it has been officially confirmed that the immediate past Commissioner for Education in the State is as fit as a fiddle and presently enjoying a very sound health
“She officially secured an approval to proceed on annual leave for the very first time since the inception of the Ogbeni Aregbesola political administration.”
Labiran maintained that the Osogbo born politician, with whom he is in a regular telephone contact, would soon be back on her beat as the number two citizen in the state.
He thanked the people in the state who, he said, showed concern about the state of health of the deputy governor and advised rumour peddlers to desist from promoting rumours.
He said the rumour was as a “wind that blows no one any good.”
