…See Other Top Government officials, who having benefited from the monetization policy by the government, own Property acquired in a similar manner.
Fresh facts have emerged on what has been tagged, the illegal acquisition of a property by the embattled lawmakers, Hon. Adefunmilayo Tejuoso.
In fact, many tales were given to be the reason behind the invasion of her residence,located at 3 Sasegbon Street, GRA Ikeja, Lagos, by security operatives who were acting on the orders of the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
For some, she has done everything wrong by not vacating the building for other Deputy Speakers who came after her; for others, she has settled the issue by buying the property from the government at N150m.
However, according to new findings by Happenings.com.ng, the issue which is still generating mixed feelings among many in Lagos, is not only limited to the female lawmaker, who claimed to have bought the property from the state government through her company- Debam Mega Solutions Limited, when she was the Deputy Speaker of the Lagos House of Assembly,through the monetization policy of the government. It goes way beyond that.
Happenings.com.ng further gathered that no Deputy Speaker of the Lagos Assembly has ever made use of the property as an official quarters, two Deputy Speakers had emerged before Tejuoso became the Deputy Speaker of the House, and none of them stayed in the property.
Apparently, it was one Mrs. Dawodu, a retired Permanent Secretary who was the last occupant of the premises, before Tejuoso moved in.
Aside Tejuoso, findings revealed that the likes of Governors, Ambode, Rauf Aregbesola, Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi are also beneficiaries of the monetization policy which saw them all acquiring properties the way Funmi Tejuoso did.
We gathered exclusively that, aside Funmi Tejuoso, the governor of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode also benefitted from such privilege when he bought his house on Glover Street, Ikoyi Lagos, a prominent part of the acquatic state.
Many who are privy to this information are wondering why Governor Ambode who intends to recover government assets sold at an undervalued price doesn’t begin with his own property.
Aside the governor, there are so many other top government officials who have also benefited from the monetization policy. Now, the question still remains: why are others being shielded from the same treatment the female lawmaker is getting at the moment.
A top politician who have benefited from the policy is Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi who bought his property at 7 Oduduwa Street.
Other government officials present and past who are also beneficiaries include: Justice Atilade; Justice Akande; Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN); Dele Alake; Justice Phillips; current Commissioner for Housing, Hon. Gbolahan Lawal; APC Lagos State Chairman, Henry Olawale Ajomale, among others.
It, however remains to be seen if Governor Ambode will have the political will to also go after these afore listed beneficiaries.
