He said the Ikeja Model City Master Plan designated the computer village for residential use and that the government would adhere to the plans to make the area more organised and habitable.
Ayorinde, however, explained that the state government had not given permits to any individual or organisation for the construction of an ICT specialised mall directly beside the newly built Ikeja Bus Terminal, adding that such move was not in line with government’s regeneration plan for the capital city.
He disclosed that the government had met with the executive members of Computer and Allied Products Dealers Association of Nigeria (CAPDAN) where it reiterated its commitment to the relocation plan.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
