... government will always pay compensation for any land acquired

The Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde on Sunday, begged those protesting the takeover of their land for developmental purposes, saying government will always pay compensation for any land acquired.

The governor made the appeal while speaking at the 1st year remembrance of late Chief Theophilus Akinyele held at the St Paul’s Anglican Church, Ajia, Ibadan.

He said the indigenes needed to emulate Pa Akinyele whom he said donated his own land for the use of the state.

He said the state had received a commitment from the Nigerian Air Force to set up Air Force Base in Ajia, adding that the base would fast-track the development of the village.

He appealed to those protesting government acquisition of land for public good to stop so as not to be a clog to the wheel of progress.
