The Housing Development Advocacy Network, an NGO, has condemned in strong terms the recent demolition of the popular musician, Yinka Ayefele’s N800 million music house, saying it was an economic waste.
Briefing journalists on Monday in Abuja, the President of the group, Festus Adebayo, described the demolition of the music house of the popular gospel musician as an economic waste and disregard for rule of law.
The Advocate reports that Oyo State Government on August 19, demolished the Music House, which housed Fresh FM, a radio station and music studios that belong to the artiste despite a court injunction restraining it from demolition.
“How can we grow our institutions if we do not respect the rule of law; we need strong institutions led by contented patriots, working collaboratively with other institutions to move things forward.
“What has happened in Ibadan is not about Ayefele, but it is about right or wrong thing, it is also about laws and processes.
“When such act occurred and there are no protest and repercussion on the governor, it emboldens, potentates at all level of the government. This induces fears and uncertainty in the socio-economic development process.”
According to the president, no reasonable investor will invest in an environment where the government cannot obey the rule of law.
