Lagos Commissioner In Trouble Over Statement

An infrastructure development firm, Masters Reality International Concepts Limited, has accused the Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Wasiu Anifowose, of making libellous claims against it.

Anifowose had on Tuesday issued a statement, saying the state government did not grant approval for the development of the Ikeja IT Mart as claimed by the firm.

His office also demolished the fence erected on the land.

The firm on Wednesday asked the commissioner to retract his comment or face legal action.

In a letter dated July 19, 2017,  the firm, through its solicitor, Lukman Imam, accused the commissioner of falsely claiming that his office was not aware of the project, saying a letter dated April 25, 2017, was sent to the commissioner’s office, conveying details of the project.

“By the said letter written by your office, our client is in the final stage of complying with all requirements which will facilitate issuance and grant of building plan approval.

“Also our client has never claimed that it is in partnership with any tier of government for the project,” the letter read in part.

The firm also said Anifowose, deliberately attempted to mislead the public and portray it in a bad light.

“It is shocking that you referred to our client as a fraudster in your statement to the press. Your libellous reference to our client as a fraudster (directly and by innuendo) has adversely affected its enviable reputation and meritorious rating in the business community.

 “Consequently, we demand that you retract the offensive statement and re-erect our clients fence unlawfully and maliciously demolished,” the statement read.
