Flat owners in Victoria Island, Lagos demand for new facility manager!

The flat owners at the sprawling 1004 Estate in Victoria Island, Lagos have had it with their facility manager and are presently taking actions towards changing this.

1004 Estate Limited

The homeowners at 1004 are tired of their facility manager, 1004 Estate Limited and are ready for a change.

Their complaints include: not serving their interest, getting slammed with huge bills for services and not given the opportunity to discuss the items on it or negotiate a best price for them.

At a meeting at the weekend, two of the principal officers of the body of flat owners, Chief Dele Ogedengbe, Chairman of the Legal Committee, 1004; and Mr. Anthony Ogunkoya said they felt exploited by the facility management firm.

An example of the exploitation includes the facility manager, Sam Ukpong, increasing the electricity tariff to N75 per unit, as soon as he took over the management of the estate’s facilities.

“We challenged him but he refused, we asked him to take it back to N50 per unit but he also refused and we now reported the matter to Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), which wrote to EKDC (Eko Disco) and Eko Forum. On their intervention, we all did the calculation and they said we should be paying N41.7 – approximately N42 per unit. He was part of this and we agreed that we should manage it together. He signed the document but refused to implement it till today; we were paying the N41.7 until a month ago when he went and got an injunction against NERC.”

In order to change their officer, the flat owners are presently taking signatures of their members in order reach a consensus.

As at last weekend, over  700 of them, out of a total number of 1070 owners, had signed the mandate.
