Bayelsa State Government on Wednesday demolished a one-storey private building owned by Governor Seriake Dickson because it obstructed the Right-of-Way as well as intruding on the state Capital City Master Plan.
 
Deputy Governor John Jonah told journalists that the location of the Governor’s house obstructed the Right-of-Way, hence there would be no compensation for him.
He said:

    In line with the development control of the CCDA and urban renewal of the state, the government awarded contract for the dualisation of the road. Anyone who has built structures on the Right-of-Way should expect such buildings to be demolished.

    One of the houses we have found to have interfered with the plan of Yenagoa is this one-storey structure belonging to the Governor. 

    On the advice of the CCDA that is concerned with development control of the state, the house was marked since last year for demolition. And you know we have awarded contract for the dualisation of the Opolo Road.”


 
However, some Yenagoa residents on Wednesday, according to Punch, claimed that only a section of Dickson’s building was demolished, and that the exercise was a strategy to enable the government to demolish buildings of perceived opponents without causing public outrage.

Brilliant.

Everyone should be treated the same irrespective of position. And more importantly as the governor you would think he should know what is legal and illegal in his own jurisdiction.

But then, we are talking about a nation where with status comes arrogance and intimidation!

Well, everyman is entitled to his opinion. But as far as I am concerned, this is leading by example. Whether it is viewed as political or not (after all, the Governor is a politician, and a good one for that matter), it is a step in the right direction.
