Oyo govt seals banks, teleco outlet
Oyo State Government has sealed some commercial banks as well as telecommunications masts around Ibadan metropolis.
The enforcement team of the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, led by the Director, Land Use Charge, Olufisayo Ogunbiyi, during a tour around the city of Ibadan, said the action was due to non-compliance with payment of revenue to the coffers of the state government.
According to him, the commercial banks and the telecommunications outfits have been served notices before the enforcement team visited them.
He gave the assurance that once they pay the required land use charge, their premises would be re-opened for business.
Ogunbiyi noted that the Oyo State government has zero tolerance for non-compliance to its policies, hence, all business owners should ensure payment of charges to the state government’s account to ensure their businesses are not disrupted as the exercise is still continuing.
