The Edo state Government has concluded discussions with Chief of Army Staff, to take possession of a parcel land currently occupied by the Nigerian army.
The land, situated near Oregbeni Market, along Ikpoba Hill, in Benin City, is being re-allocated to the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
The State governor, Godwin Obaseki disclosed this when the new Comptroller of the NIS, Edo State Command, Rabi Garba, visited him at the Government House, Benin City.
He said the State Government would soon begin physical retrieval of the land soon.
“In terms of land where you currently operate from, I spoke with the Army Chief of Staff when he visited last month. We have been assured that the Nigerian Army has formally relinquished the land. It is now for us to take physical possession of the property.
“The Chief of Staff will arrange a tripartite meeting between the Federal agencies occupying that property, the Brigade Commander and Edo State Government. So that we can commence the process of getting the Nigerian Army to vacate that land, giving the Federal agency the proper allocation, Certificate of Occupancy to expand their office”, he said.
The Governor said his administration would fast track issues on the land on time to enable the NIS to perform its official function optimally
