As part of efforts at curbing proliferation of hotels, night clubs and forestall any breach of public peace, particularly, in Government Reserved Areas exclusively planned for residence, Ondo State Government has placed embargo on establishing new hotels, night clubs, or beer parlour joints in Alagbaka and Ijapo estates in Akure, the state capital.
Addressing journalists after the State Executive Meeting held on Monday, 6th May, 2019, the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Yemi Olowolabi, said the move was necessary to ensure peace and tranquility in the areas.
He stated that the two estates were designed for residential purposes and government will not allow indiscriminate siting of hotels, night clubs and beer parlour joints in the said areas.
Olowolabi went further that government will no longer approve the construction of new hotels or night clubs in the affected areas.
According to the Information Commissioner: “For those who have secured approvals for the building of hotels in the past two years but have not commenced construction, such approvals are no longer valid” he said.
