Lagos Gov, Fashola Rakes In Over N400 Million From Forced Levies On Jakande Estate Residents

3 min read

There is a saying that you don’t know what people will become until they are in a place of authority. This may be said about the current Governor of Lagos State, Raji Fashola, who has suddenly turned from the once darling Governor most people of the state, especially the elite take him to be, to someone the people will do anything to oppose.
Recent findings revealed that Fashola sometime ago put himself in the bad books of retired civil servants in the state and people living in the low-cost housing estates built by Alhaji Lateef Jakande across the state while he was the governor of the state.
Fashola, we gathered, approached the residents of these estates that were built in more than 12 different areas across the state, and accused them of not making complete payment of flats they’ve been living in for more than 20 years. He ordered that they would have to make a payment of N10,000 each to the coffers of the state government within a stated period or his administration would take over the flats from them and chase them to the streets.
Though his pronouncement caught most of the people by surprise, all had to make the payment or lose their homes to the governor, who is hell-bent on following up on his order, not minding the fact that many of those involved are retired civil servants of the state whose payment for the flats were deducted from their salary by the then Jakande government.
Even after he had forced residents of Jakande Estates all over the state to make the forceful payment which runs into hundreds of billions of naira, according to the simple calculation based on the number of blocks and flats in each of the estates scattered across the state, some of which are as stated below:
Abesan Low-Cost Housing Estate is the largest of all Jakande-built estates and it has more than 1,000 blocks of 6 flats each, which makes it over 6,000 flats that paid N10,000 each from the Ipaja area. This means Fashola would have raked in N60 million from the retired civil servant in that estate.
Isolo Low-Cost Housing Estate over 400 blocks of 6 flats each = 2,400 flats multiplied by N10,000 =
N24 million
Agege Low-Cost Housing Estate over 600 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,600 flats multiplied by N10,000 =
N36 milion
Amuwo-Odofin Low-Cost Housing Estate over 500 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,000 flat multiply by N10, 000 = N30 million
Ketu-Alapere Low-Cost Housing Estate over 500 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,000 flat multiply by N10, 000 = N30 million
Ikorodu Low-Cost Housing Estate over 500 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,000 flat multiply by N10, 000 =
N30 million
Epe Low-Cost Housing Estate over 500 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,000 flat multiply by N10, 000 =
N30 million
Badagry Low-Cost Housing Estate over 500 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,000 flat multiply by N10, 000 =
N30 million
Ogba Low-Cost Housing Estate over 600 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,600 flat multiply by N10, 000 =
N36 million
Iba Low-Cost Housing Estate over 700 blocks of 6 flats each = 4,200 flat multiply by N10, 000 =
N42 million
Adeniji-Adele Low-Cost Housing Estate over 500 blocks of 6 flats each = 3,000 flat multiply by N10, 000 = N30 million
The amount he was able to force out of the residents of Jakande Estates was said to be more than N400 million, after which he later ordered them to paint the houses or he would paint it for them three times the normal cost they would paint it themselves.

  1. Is Fashola really people’s governor as claimed by his supporters or he’s also toying the part of his godfather?

  2. fashola is big thief, he pretends better than anyone in the history of nigerian politics. he is very wicked human being, with no real feeling for people but his boss tinubu. bastards

  3. How sad are you critics? Fashola is no doubt the best we ever had in the whole of Nigeria. we all need to pay our fair share towards the development of our country. Just pay your tax and stop moaning.

  4. You need to get qualified editor who knows what publishing a soft sell magazine evolve, or you just choose to be a junk magazine. Lagosians are not illiterate like some of you’re. So don’t throw any crap at us. And @tosan you a FOOL! @Adewale what do you get from over 12years of Poverty Development Party? Change is real, PDP will loose 2015 Presidential elections Nigerians are not stupid like some of you agents of economic slavery.

  5. It’s sad to know that some pple like balogun,nino,yemi and tayo can still b suject to d fool’s paradise of this great theif and wicked leader of our time in respect of ASIWAJU AWON OLE,Tinubu,it’s saddens me a lot.But y are we Yorubas so secterian and tribalistic in nature?d same way we looked and watched Awolowo with our gullibility to steal and amass our collective wealth all in d deceptive and destructive pretence of free education.Awolowo wu among his peers of 1st republic leaders became so stupendously rich coutesy of our wealth and yet he lived all his live a politician,leader and custodian of our collective wealth.Y is it difficult for our Yoruba pple to ask where this man Awolowo has gotten d wealth dat is still being brandished by his family 25yrs after his demise,or are we so gullible to dat extent dat we cover own atrocities but fast to beam our search light to anoda region jus bcos we r having d media power?.Sir Tafawa Balewa,His most honourable Nnamdi Azikwe,Sir Armadu Bello,Sir Micheal Okpara,des were tru and servile leaders of our nation dat truly served their pples without calling dem fools by stealing their collective wealth.These are leaders dat all served us with true minds,dey all died without having their own houses,dey all died in Govt allocated houses,dey all died with their peasant,true and conservative lives of a true set of leaders.But coming to d gladiator wu tot and believed dat his pple were still in d dark of non civilisation and therefore took d cheap oppotunity to unavertedly enslave his pple,example of his atrocities was fr d den minister of finance Okoh Tieboh wu stole to stupor our wealth.The same thing is still happening in Lagos in dis jet age century where we have over 20 millions graduate fr d southwest and we still allow one drug addict,forgerer and great enemy of our prosperous future to still our collective wealth and still allow him to brandish it to our naked eyes unavertedly.Full scale corruption in Nigeria started right fr d land of we Yorubas wen our so called 1st republic leader”Awolowo” uninteruptedly dipped his hands in2 d western region govt purse to scoop whooping 125 thousand pounds in 1952,d quantum sum of money he used to do campaign by hiring helicopter to campaign truout d southwest,an exercise perceived to b d first of his kind in d history of electioneering campaign in d world and dis lead to serious fight btw Awolowo and Chief Ayo Rosiji,his den closest ally wu eventually decamped to d side of Belewa’s national govt which he Ayo said was trully servile and accountable to d pple.All des are subject to scrutiny.Yorubas are d starting point of corruption in dis country and we continue to b d bedrock of unaverted colossal corruption in dis country.U PPLE CALLED BALOGUN,NINO,YEMI AND TAYO,let us collectively call a spade a spade by critisising ACN alongside d dreaded PDP,dey re both killers of our prosperous future,Lagos is an unthinkable mess of colossal corruption.

    1. Osage, this article of yours is highly informative. I have always wondered why people celebrate Awolowo so much. Yet, Awo’s legacy is to loot while in office. Tinubu is clearly inspired by Awolowo. You can see why it is party time whenever ACN win elections. Awolowo in my eyes is an economic terrorist. So too, Tinubu. Fashola, Obasanjo. The Yorubas and by extension Nigeria have been blessed with rotten leadership. God save my people. Well done Osage

  6. OSAGE,
    For starters you are not a Yoruba man. Every individual has a right to form his or her own opinion on political issues and political leaders. For this reason, you are entitled to your opinion. Your style of writing has betrayed you as one of those who abhor the Yoruba people, their leaders and their achievements. The sentence that underlines your hatred is…”Yorubas are d starting point of corruption in dis country and we continue to b d bedrock of unaverted colossal corruption in dis country”. The article in question was criticizing Fashola, you can either agree or disagree with the story and or comments on the board. One thing that is certain is that the article is not about the Yoruba race or Awo. It is about the policies of Fashola’s government. Please stay focused.

    1. What do you mean by Osage is not a Yoruba man. I am a Yoruba man and I agree with most of the things he said in his comment. Is it being a Yoruba that is important or saying the truth? sorry, you sound like a very mean and tribalistic person to me. What a shame!

  7. Pls people we dont need to course each other over this issue, the it appear to me it dosent appear to another person that way but for me i worked personally wit Fasola and he is a patriotic leadr he knws what is good for the people he has d pple in mind, his govt. is a open govt he replied to all complain form the people. Fasola is the 1st govt in Nigeria who will remove people who disturb roads made for u and i in the name of partying and some other tings which is not necessary he is the only governor who will lok into the affairs of market people by locking up dirty and untidy markets and so many to be mentioned. as for me no body is perfect so let him do his best and go his own. What i knw is that this man will not be forgotten in Lagos. Eko oni baje ooo

  8. I dont really understand which one i should believe about this people cos we cant even say who is lying and who is not. God just save us.

  9. ASSASSINATION IS THE ONLY WAY TO TURN NIGERIA AROUND FOR GOOD, WE GOT NOTHING TO LOOSE. DOESN’T MATTER HOW MANY SECURITY THEY GOT, THEIR SECURITY ARE NIGERIANS & THEY WILL GET OUT OF THEIR BULLET PROOF VEHICLE, WE HOPE PEOPLE WILL NOT KEEP WORSHIPING THEM, CAUSE WHEN THERE TIME COME TO DIE YOU DON’T WANT TO BE BY THEIR SIDE.

  10. YOU HARDLY SEES THIS BASTARD FASHOLAS MUM OR HE TALKS ABOUT HER MUM, CAUSE HIS MUM IS IN METAL INSTITUTION CAUSE BY GOV, FASHOLA. FACT.

  11. So what is Fashola’s problem here. You have not told us if the said money went to his private account. Is it wrong to ask people to paint thier houses when most buildings in the estate have become eye sores. This is definitely a useless and misleading piece.
