Dualization of Agulu and Nanka Roads

LLEGAL OCCUPANTS SHOULD BEGIN TO RELOCATE

In line with Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo’s plan to bequeath an enduring road network to Ndi Anambra, the Government of Anambra State will be embarking on the dualization of the Agulu and Nanka Roads.

Though these are federal roads, they are primarily used by Ndi Anambra. Governor Soludo has therefore redesigned them for reconstruction to better facilitate commercial, industrial and agricultural activities across the areas they cut through.

In the light of this, government wishes to advise property owners along those routes to begin to plan how to relocate them somewhere else.

The law demands that any property along a federal highway must be set back 47.5 meters from the centre of the road. Anything short of that is in violation of the law and such a property will be regarded and treated as an illegal structure which we do not wish to happen.

Government is therefore calling on traditional rulers (Ndi Igwe) and President Generals of the affected communities, as well as market leaders, to escalate the awareness campaign on the need to relocate shops and houses from the brink of these roads. The traditional rulers and PGs should also come together to take practical steps to map out areas where those that would be consequently affected can resettle before the construction work commences.

By this early notice, Government wishes to minimize avoidable losses.

REMOVE YOUR ILLEGAL STRUCTURE NOW OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES

Anambra State Government has noticed that in spite of the warnings given to owners of illegal structures to remove them, these notices have been largely disregarded.

This government is a proponent of law and order, and therefore will not condone any flagrant violation of legitimate directives given in the interest of public good.

Government has repeatedly stated that these illegal structures distort and completely mangle our cities’ original masterplan. This has resulted in the blocking of our drainages and water channels, causing flooding and, sometimes, loss of lives. This can no longer be tolerated as the rainy season is just around the corner. 

Let it be known therefore that as government has directed individuals, companies, market and park leaders to commence intensive desilting of their gutters and drainages, it will soon start a sustained campaign to remove illegal structures.

Owners of such structures are therefore advised to remove them on their own so that they can carefully evacuate their belongings. But where they ignore government notices and the structures are removed by government, the owner(s) of such structure(s) will bear the cost of the logistics of removal. The owner of the structure will be given a stipulated time to pay, after which the property/goods within would be disposed to settle the cost.

Government is not unmindful of the fact that some of these illegal structures might have been erected by the owners out of ignorance of the law or due to economic circumstances or lack of knowledge of the negative consequences of their actions to the environment and human lives.

But now that they know, it is only proper they remove the structures by themselves to avoid the harsh consequences that may trail their negligence to act promptly.

Signed
