Goodbye: Relocation of Ikeja Computer Village

As a follow up to the story on the relocation of Ikeja Computer Village, our correspondent, during a visit to Katangowa Market, along Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, gathered that Katangowa is the proposed site where the Ikeja traders may be resettled. In terms of size, Katangowa is bigger than the Computer Village, as the market covers about 26 hectares of land with most of the traders dealing in second-hand clothes.
Katangowa shows a vivid picture of a disorganised setting. While the major entrance to the market from Lagos-Abeokuta expressway is almost taken over by street traders, a large portion of the market has been overtaken by refuse. During the visit, some of the items seen on display in the market in large quantities were clothes, bags, shoes, curtains, belts and other textile materials.

Ikeja Police College: Falana Threatens To Sue FG If Commandant Is Sacked

As the fate of the Commandant of the Ikeja Police College, Mr. Irimiya Yerima, hangs in the balance over what the Presidency described as negative image given to Nigeria by the exposure of the rot in the college to the world, human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, yesterday threatened to tackle the Presidency if Yerima was dismissed over no fault of his.Information Nigeria gathers that the feeling within the Presidency is that it was the commandant that gave unrestricted access to ChannelsTV to record the footage and beam it to the world so as to embarrass the Federal Government – this much the president revealed during his unscheduled visit to the college last Friday.

(Photos) Pres GEJ Pays Unscheduled Emergency Visit To Police College, Ikeja

Sources say that even his top aides were taken unaware by the unscheduled stop.  The police authorities were also caught unawares and had in fact rented the college to host a private wedding, which is illegal. President Jonathan demanded that the top brass explain these actions to which they had no sufficient answers.

NYSC, please pay us

Akenosi Igbanor, Babington Ashaye Street, Omole Ikeja, Lagos State. +23480932538: It is so disheartening that the National Youth Service Corps has yet to pay some corps members in Lagos State their allowance for the month of September to October after passing out last week. Most of the affected corps members have accounts with Access Bank and Ecobank. We don’t know if the problem is from the Federal Government or the banks. Others received their allowance two weeks ago while we have yet to receive ours. There have been rumours that we might not be paid. I hope this message gets to the right authorities.

Kajola Terrace Apartments for completion in 18 months

Kajola Investment Plc and Animasaun Group are set to deliver the Kajola Terrace Apartments, which comprises 12 units of four-bedroom flats in Ikeja, GRA in the next 18 months.

The project is a joint venture between Kajola Investment which provided the land and the Animasaun Group brings its expertise into play in the area of funds mobilisation and construction.

The Chairman, Kajola Investment Plc, Prof. Wale Omole, said during the turning of the sod of the luxury terrace apartments on Tuesday in Lagos that the partners have equal stakes in the project.

According to him, the Kajola Terrace Apartments come with unique features that stand each of the units out.

He said each unit would have four bedrooms and a servant quarter, adding that “the target of the project is top executives and high profile individuals with luxury taste, as well as expatriates and corporate institutions.”

“In designing the estate, careful attention has been given to parking facilities, setbacks, airspaces, height regulations, space control, safety regulations, landscaping, recreation area and waste management system, among others,” Omole said.

He described the apartments as a test case, following which the company would move into the low income housing segment in some parts of Lagos, and later, Abuja.

On his part, the Managing Director, Animasaun Group, Dr. Dapo Animasaun, said the indigenous firm of developers decided to go into the partnership because of its belief in the viability of the project.

According to him, the serene location of the project will make it an easy attraction for upwardly mobile executives, who desire good life and value good taste and choice.

He was, however, silent on the amount to be expended on the project and the price at which each unit would be sold.

Animasaun said his firm would complete the project within 15 months, following which Kajola Investment would begin the sale of the own units.

He said his company saw it as “a delightful joint venture project” because of the calibre of people behind Kajola Investment.

“These are people who have seen it all and do not feel threatened by our ideas. On our part, we see this partnership as an opportunity to align our vibrant ideas with the experience of the promoters of Kajola Investment,” he said.
