The Dickson led Restoration Government today 1st March, 2018 commenced the recovery of government owned properties across the state. The properties being recovered were duly acquired by the state government and full compensation paid to the families and communities from which they were acquired.
These properties initially acquired by the state government for developmental purposes have over the years been illegally resold by fraudulent traditional title holders and government
reserves the right to carry out the recovery of these properties.
Today’s action gives credence to the value this government attaches to development. Recall that the governor has stated that he will not play politics with the development of the state and there will be no sacred cows.
The demolition and recovery exercise is not arbitrary, and only properties where compensation have been fully paid for and land acquired by government are affected.
