Enugu Govt seals venue INEC issued Certificates of Return

The Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority (ECTDA), has sealed the hall of BON Platinum Hotel within the Independence Layout.

 

The venue was where the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), issued certificates to Governor-elect Peter Mbah, deputy Ifeanyi Ossai and House of Assembly members-elect.

 

A structural defect had caused a loud noise on Thursday during the issuance of the certificates of return to the winners.

 

The bang triggered pandemonium which caused the recipients, their family members, INEC officials and others to scamper for safety.

 

During an inspection on Friday, the ECTDA discovered the building had no approval plan, the same case with another structure under construction.

 

The Chairman, Josef Onoh announced that the hall would remain shut pending the outcome of further integrity checks.

 

“The proprietor is not ready to exercise patience for the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) to come for their own inspection.

 

“Asking us to allow her host a wedding there tomorrow. I wonder how much she collected that the venue cannot be relocated,” Onoh said.
