The Housing Development Advocacy Network (HDAN) has appealed to the Abia State Government to reconsider its decision to revoke land titles and demolish the Trademore Housing Estate in Umuahia, the state capital.

The plea was made in a recent statement issued in Abuja by HDAN’s Executive Director, Festus Adebayo, in response to the government’s planned action.

Adebayo called on the Abia State Government to rescind from it’s proposed action on the N26 Billion Naira Investment, as it would negatively impact the industry.

He further charged the state Governor to embark on initiatives that would create an enabling environment for the Industry to flourish, and attract more investments.

Reacting to developments, he said “Our attention has been drawn to the proposed plan by Abia state government to revoke land, demolish Trademore project in Umuahia consisting of a 1,500 capacity event centre, mini estate and other facilities worth N26 billion Naira.

“We have also sighted the building approvals, certificate of occupancy of the said property.

“Housing Development Advocacy Network charges the State Governor to use the real estate potentials of the state as a tool to attract investment and create an enabling environment. “This serves as a pivot for more jobs to be created and further contribute to development.

“We therefore use this medium to call on the government to explore other amicable resolutions to this matter, rather than resorting to actions that would lead to waste of investments. “This should not be encouraged, the government needs to re-align its focus to creating a better environment for more investments”. Adebayo noted.
