Panic Grips Defaulters Of Ekiti Govt’s Housing Estate As Fayose’s Ultimatum Lapses; Defaulters Pay N10m In A Day

Ekiti State Government has said the sealing off of the houses of defaulting occupants of Irewolede Estate, Ado-Ekiti has no political
undertone, but that affected persons have bluntly refused to meet their contractual obligations to the government.

In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday, 6th August, 2015, the government said out of 254 allocated houses in the estate, only 37 allottees had paid fully, adding that 217 allottees were yet to complete payment.

“The total amount being owed by the allottees as at the time Governor Ayo Fayose assumed office was N904,635,556.57.

“Total amount recovered since Governor Fayose assumed office was N82 million. Some of the allottees have sold or rented out the houses allocated to them.

“The allottees cut across political parties, as there are notable leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) among them. It is therefore not political. Over N800m is being owed by the allottees as at today.

“Today alone, over N5 million was paid by some of the allottees. The government is insisting that allottees who have declined to pay for the houses allocated to them must pay. Those who are not defaulting did not have their houses sealed.

“Because Governor Fayose directed that Irewolede Housing Estate, Ado Ekiti be sealed off because of the allottees’ refusal to pay for the houses allocated to them, over N10 million was paid today alone!

“One of the allottees paid N1 million, another one paid N396,500, two others paid N324,000 and N225,000. Others made payments ranging from N45,000 to N70,000. In all, 27 allottees have made payments as at 2pm, making a total sum of N87,447,644.00 recovered as at 2pm today,” he said.
