Accepting the responsibility to chair the branch, Alhaji Sani Ahmad Zangina in his inaugural speech said the association has been existing for well over three years in Nasarawa State, but for the proximity of Karu LGA to the Federal Capital Territory, there was need to properly inaugurate the branch which he is the Chairman.

He said there was high demand for house rents and land, but the buyers are usually duped by criminal elements who disguise as agents which events lead to litigation in Courts.

The Chairman maintained with the inauguration of the association, they would sanitise and rid the system of criminal elements.

“The demand for land and landed properties in Karu Local Government Area cannot be overemphasized and for this high demand for land and landed properties arises minor and sometimes major dispute between the buyers of lands and landed properties, the sellers or their agents.

“This dispute has been so frustrating, thereby deterring prospective buyers and settlers in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.”

“This dispute as minor as it may seem, has led to bloodshed and unnecessary litigations for lack of regulating body coordinating the activities of land and houses agents in Karu Local Government Area.

“However, it is our most humble and ardent hope that with the kick starting of the operation of this association in Karu Local Government Area, these issues leading to unnecessary dispute between the buyers of lands and landed properties, the sellers and their agents will be put to rest and or brought to its least.

“May I state further that it is for lack of co-cordinating and regulating body that does lead to unnecessary harassment by personnel of certain security agencies over issues that ordinarily should be settled warmly between the agents and their clients.

“Permit me to say that the essence of creating this association and establishment of its branch in Karu Local Government cannot be overemphasized but well-timed.

“May I further state that the establishment of the branch of this association in Karu Local Government will bring about harmonious working relationship between land and house agents, government agencies and its personnel.”

Zangina said, their operations would focus on curbing unnecessary threats and allegations of crimes against people of same businesses which has led to incarceration of certain innocent victims.

Speaking at the occasion, member representing Karu Gitata State Constituency and Chairman, House Committee on Land and Survey in Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Hon. David Maiyaki promised to support the association.

According to him, buyers have suffered in hands of the so-called agents noting that he personally had a sad experience in hands of agents which he believes, the association will properly organise genuine agents and middlemen in property business.

Also the Assistant Secretary of the association, Ademu Tanko lamented that some agents will collect landed property from buyers to market, but takes advantage of their ignorance and make money more than the property owner.

He warned the Chairman of cabal to stay away from distracting him from doing the right thing, saying that the association was already aware of their antics.
