Imo lifts ban on high-rise buildings in Aladinma, World Bank
As part of efforts to create a better living standards and adequate infrastructure for the people, Imo State Government has lifted the ban on construction of high- rise buildings in some layouts and high brow zones.
Since the creation of Imo State in 1976, areas like Aladinma, Federal Housing Esate, World Bank zones had been for the exclusive construction of bungalows with approved uniform designs of rooms and apartments.
The Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, who announced the change in layouts and land use, named the areas people as Aladinma, World Bank, Egbu Layouts among others. “Building of high rising has been unbanned in the state. People can build in Alandinma and World Bank”, he said.
He also stated that it was an offence for landlords to allow their houses to remain unpainted and dilapidated. According to him, his government would designate special areas where herdsmen would be grazing their cattle in the state to avoid conflicts.
The Governor said a Special Task Force would be put in place to ensure compliance with the new policy.
