I Did Not Violate Any Law- Demolished Hotel Owner Says

The owner of Prudent Hotel, which was demolished by the Rivers State Government, Promise Gogorodari, has denied violating any law to warrant the demolition of his structure, Punch reports.

In a telephone interview, the Lagos-based hotelier, Gogorodari said that the state government should have carried out proper investigation before demolishing his hotel, adding that the demolition of two hotels was a setback for the state in terms of investment.

“I am based in Lagos but I am not in the right frame of mind to speak now. There is nobody who will not feel bad about this. It is a hotel that I built for the past seven years. The demolition of hotels is a setback to the state in terms of investment.

“That was an investment that was taking care of my family and relatives and people around me. There was no fair hearing before the demolition took place. With this, many people are out of jobs.

“I did not violate any order. The government was supposed to do some investigations before doing that. And if they found me wanting, then another procedure should be followed; not demolishing a structure like that,” Gogorodari said.
