He said the agency had only embarked on sensitization and public enlightenment campaign

aimed at alerting the people on the dangers of building on water channels and flood plains.

 

Gbilekaa in a statement made available to journalists, said he was quoted out of context

explaining that the agency past leadership had only served abatement notices to residents,

a situation which he said was not necessary for demolition.

 

According to the statement, there is difference between abatement notices and abatement

demolition, noting that the Urban Development Board under his watch has no intention of

carrying out any demolition exercise as been over exaggerated in the media.

 

He further enjoined the good people of the state to continue to have confidence in the

Governor Samuel Ortom administration.

 

“The present administration is a pro- people government and there is no cause for alarm

and my appointment as the General Manager of the Board was to alleviate the sufferings

of the Benue people order than inflicting pains on them”, he said.
