Structure of Kaduna State University violated law, agency says

NNN: Malam Osmail Dikko, chief executive of the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Authority (KASUPDA), said the structure that was removed from the premises of the State University violated relevant laws .

Dikko, who made this known in a statement to Kaduna, said that the State Executive Council had previously given a clear directive that all public buildings and institutions must submit relevant documents before erecting new structures. in their premises.

He said KASU partially complied with the directive by submitting its master plan but without requesting permission for further development.

The Director General listed the documents to include the master plan of the institution or public building and an application for permission for the construction of a new structure.

“While waiting for the university to fully comply with the directive on the construction of new buildings within the premises of the institution and public buildings, the development control team of KASUPDA found that excavation works were continuing on the site,” he said.

Dikko said he personally visited the site on June 3 but was unable to see the site engineer.

“I only met workers. “Out of courtesy to KASU, I went back there on Sunday June 5 and this time I met the Engineer. I told him they were breaking the law and asked them to stop further work on the project until they got a permit,” he revealed.

Dikko said that on Monday the developers went ahead with the project and for this reason KASUPDA withdrew the excavation that had been started for the foundation development which was not completed.

“I don’t know if the proposed structure would have been a church or just a building. The developers broke the law and KASUPDA just fulfilled its legal duty by removing it.”
