The outgoing Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has ordered the revocation of Right of Occupancy of nine companies belonging to former Governor of the state, Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi.

The nine companies have been marked for demolition over contravention of terms and conditions of Rights of Occupancy in the state.

The City Gazette reports that Owners of the marked properties have been served notice of revocation and withdrawal of the Right of Occupancy.

The official notice of revocation was addressed to the Director of Cane Properties, Plot 11, Murtala Square, Doka, Alhaji Ibrahim Makarfi.

Some of the affected properties for demolition include five plots in Mogadishu, three plots on Kwato road, and the Doka plot.

Mahmud Aminu, the Registrar of Kaduna Geographical Information Service (KADGIS), in separate letters of revocation and withdrawal of Right of Occupancy said, “I have been directed to refer to the above Right of Occupancy, and inform you that His Excellency, Governor of Kaduna State has in the exercise of power conferred on him under section 28 (5) (a) and (b) of the Land Use Act 1978, revoked and withdrawn your rights over continued failure and contravention of covenants terms and conditions of the Right of Occupancy.”

While reacting to the development, Ibrahim Makarfi, maintained that: “Our lawyers will respond accordingly to the revocation and withdrawal of Right of Occupancy of the companies”.

Responding to the revocation notice in a text message sent to Senator Makarfi, acknowledged the receipt of nine revocation letters.

He said, “There is a serious issue. We need to meet Ustaz Yunus (SAN) to go to court to stop the state government; they just sent nine revocation letters to us”.

Ahmed Mohamed Makarfi, born in Makarfi Local Government Area of Kaduna State was the executive Governor of the state between 1999 and 2007. He was represented Kaduna North in the Red Chamber for 4 years – between 2007 and 2011.
