Director General of the Kwara State Bureau of Lands, Barrister Bolaji Edun is being redeployed to another government office as the recently created Geographic Information Service has assimilated the old bureau of Lands.
A statement has signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Kwara State governor, Rafiu Ajakaye said.
The statement debunked the news that pervaded the internet few days ago that Edun was sacked by the state government.
It read: “It is important to clarify that the DG of the Bureau of Lands Barrister Edun was not sacked as some media platforms have reported.
“There is a cessation of the office of the DG Lands in the state. ‘Lands’, as previously known, is now a department under the recently created Kwara State GIS.”
According to the CPS, the GIS is to oversee lands and related subjects in more modern, tech-driven and business-like manners.
“Since there is no such position as DG lands in the emerging arrangement, the Governor will be assigning a new role to Bar. Bolaji Edun. Reports that he was sacked should be ignored by members of the public,” it added.205
