Ogun Lawmaker Urges Amosun To Sign Anti-land Grabbing Bill

Yinka Folarin, an Ogun State lawmaker, has called on governor Ibikunle Amosun to sign the state anti-land grabbing bill into law.

“The House Committee for the Defence of Human Rights is seeking accelerated assent by the governor to enable it become enforceable,’’ said Folarin, who was chairman of the committee.

Bill to address conflicts

According to him, the “long awaited’’ bill would protect the rights of the people and also put an end to unimaginable communal disputes.

“The bill will protect the human rights of the people; bring an end to the unimaginable communal disputes, and fraudulent activities of some traditional rulers, the ‘Ajagungbales’ and security operatives.

“All these people are in the business of defrauding people of their hard-earned money under the guise of selling landed properties and unlawful arrests,” the lawmaker said.

He commended the House for passing the bill, saying that it was geared towards dealing decisively with the peculiar problems confronting human rights protection in the state.

“The bill will protect the right to ownership of landed properties and peaceful coexistence in the state,” Folarin said.
