The Management of the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State, BCOS, has reacted to a wicked and false rumour which trended on the social media stating that the State Government and a private developer planned to demolish the BCOS Staff Quarters on Sunday, April 18, 2021.
In a statement issued by the Executive Chairman of the Corporation, Prince Dotun Oyelade, the BCOS Management said there was no iota of truth in the story.
The Statement explained that the Management had consistently and extensively engaged residents of the sprawling and expansive Staff Quarters which has been rechristened ‘Engineer Lere Adigun Estate’, on the development plans for the Estate.
The Management reiterated that interests of the residents will be protected and accorded topmost priority in any development plan or scheme.
The statement emphasised that there is absolutely no truth in the story that the Quarters is to be demolished and residents forcefully ejected.
It advised the Corporation’s Labour Unions, all residents and members of Staff to ignore this wicked and unsubstantiated rumour; adding that the Management will continue to engage the Labour Unions and residents on the development plans for the proposed Engr Lere Adigun Estate.
