RE: A COMPASSIONATE APPEAL FOR PAYMENT OF COMPENSATION ON PROPERTIES DEMOLISHED BY THE DEMOLITION TEAM OF THE MINISTRY OF WORKS BUT NOT PAID ALONG NDON-EYO-IKOT AKPATEK-IKWE ROAD
I salute you resilience and ardent effort in infrastructural development of our state, may God bless you sir.
I humbly wish to remind and appeal to Akwa Ibom State Government through the Ministry of Works to kindly pay me on my properties demolished by the demolition team of Ministry of Works when compensation has not been paid, the said demolition was done on Wednesday 23rd October, 2019 and I was asked to come on Monday 28th October, 2019 for my payment, upon coming I was told that the Hon. Commissioner has not approved the payment yet, but instead he ordered for a revaluation of those properties, this was done by the government consultant Kufre Ufot consult, the report was submitted to the payment consultant. I have waited for over one year now and I am left with no other option than to write and appeal that compensation be paid for those properties which was fully captured by the government valuer/consultant.
Please sir, we have waited since October, 2019 till today and nothing has been done to ameliorate the sufferings and hardship we are passing through, we are now homeless with no place to stay, I know this government to be a listening government.
Please kindly pay us for KUC/29 and the unmarked structure which was demolished without any payment of compensation. We had earlier written to this office and our letter was received on the 4th of November, 2019.
I shall not hesitate to seek legal redress if our plea is not considered.
Thank you in anticipation of a favourable response.
