The Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA) says it has sealed an abandoned filling station under construction near Otedola Jubilee Estate Gate, Omole Phase II, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Way.

General Manager Mr Kehinde Osinaike said this on Wednesday in a statement made available to journalists and signed by Mrs Abimbola Emdin-Umeh, Director, Public Affairs, LASPPPA.

Osinaike said the action was taken at the resumption of enforcement activities of the authority in the new year.

He said the building, which had been abandoned for long, was sealed and served relevant notices in order to prevent further construction works.

Meanwhile, Osinaike, at the first management meeting for the year, advised members of staff to be more professional while performing their duties.

According to him, members of staff must be civil and cordial in dealing with clients visiting their offices for enquiries or filling of applications.

He also advised applicants and members of the public to desist from the inducement of staff of the authority in order to compromise their duties.

Osinaike urged stakeholders to embrace voluntary compliance with the stipulations of Town Planning Laws as its benefits far outweigh enforced compliance.

He also advised the public to contact the head office of the authority at Oba Akinjobi Way, Old Secretariat, GRA Ikeja or District Offices closest to them for further enquiries and necessary clarifications.
