Oyo fire victims beg Gov for renovation Permit


Victims of a fire incident in Dugbe, Oyo State, have called on  Governor Seyi Makinde to step-in and grant them renovation permit.

They appealed to the governor to prevail on the relevant agencies to approve the renovation permit, to allow them repair the building and save it from collapse.

They said no court granted an injunction to stop the renovation of the dilapidated building.

The appeal was made in a letter dated April 8, 2021, by S.O. Sanni & CO, on behalf of the victims.

They include the owner of Pelly Foam Industries Ltd, Dapo Davies and the traders within the property on 1, Lebanon Street, Dugbe, Ibadan, which was gutted by fire in April last year.

The letter was received on April 16 by the Governor’s Office and made available to reporters yesterday in Ibadan.

The traders said despite that the documents requested by relevant agencies for the renovation permit have been submitted, to their surprise, a year after, the approval is yet to be granted.

They said they learnt that Governor Makinde was misinformed that there were pending cases in court, which is farther from the truth.
