Ogun State government has concluded plans to develop old buildings across the state through the “regeneration scheme” initiative.

Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Olatunji Odunlami, made this known during a stakeholders’ meeting organised by Ogun State Slum Regeneration Authority on the regeneration scheme of a hundred metres Itoku-Ikija corridor, at Olumo Rock Tourist Complex Auditorium in Abeokuta.

Mr Odunlami explained that, the scheme was designed to assist indigenes to redevelop their family property as well as developers who aim at putting up buildings in the areas.

The Commissioner who noted that, the scheme would not require taking lands of the people in the area, said the initiative was also designed to boost the tourist appeal, socio-economic landscape through increased trade and commercial activities of the state.

In a remark,  the Acting General Manager, Ogun State Slum Regeneration Authority, Abiola Ayodele, maintained that, strict adherence and implementation of the plans are essential to modernise the community and attract investors.

Responding, the Osile of Oke-Ona Egba, Oba  Adedapo Tejuoso, represented by Oluwo Oke-Ona Egba, Chief Samson Ogunmade, appreciated the government for including the community in its infrastructural and developmental plans.

He appealed to the government not to relent in its efforts at ensuring good roads in the hinterland, particularly, the linking road to their community.
