Controversy trails location of ‘Dorian Home’ as LG Boss kicks against address
The executive chairman of Idanre local government area of Ondo state, Prince Kayode Aroloye has described as erroneous the address being used for the Dorian Home scheduled to be inaugurated this month.
Dorian home is a multimillion naira building constructed to take care of motherless children, widows and the less privileged in the state.
In a statement, on Friday, the Idanre council boss noted that the current address on the building was incorrect as the children home was build on a land in the local government.
Aroloye said “It has come to the attention of the Management of Idanre LGA that a certain Dorian Home for Charity and Social Development which was built on an expanse of land which is well inside Idanre Kingdom and is about to be commissioned, has erroneously referred to and addressed the said edifice as Kilometer 4, Idanre Road, Akure Ondo State.
This erroneous address is being circulated in all manner of media – radio jingles, print, electronic and social media and the invitation cards for the commissioning of the building. This is not correct.
While the LGA and the peace loving and good people of Idanre Kingdom appreciate the efforts of the owner of Dorian Home as regards the benefits of siting such an edifice in our community in terms of infrastructural and economic development even job creation; it is however very important for us to correct the error in the address of the Home NOW once and for all.
For the avoidance of doubt, the land on which Dorian Home for Charity and Social Development is built IS WITHIN THE ADMINISTRATIVE BOUNDARIES OF IDANRE LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA and it’s address is
KILOMETER 4 AKURE ALADE IDANRE ROAD, IDANRE and NOT the erroneous one being circulated both in the various media including the invitation card to the commissioning.
This PRESS RELEASE has become expedient in order to put the records straight and for future references.”
