The Osun State Chapter of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) has emphasized the detrimental effects of the absence of a functional rent tribunal on landlords and tenants.

In a letter addressed to the state government, CDHR urged the urgent reestablishment of the Rent Tribunal in Osun State, which has remained inactive for over a year.

The letter, signed by Emmanuel Olowu, Chairman of Osun CDHR, stressed that prompt attention to this matter would alleviate the burden on the judicial system and foster a fair and transparent environment for addressing tenancy-related issues. It further highlighted the potential increase in internally generated revenue for the state as a result of reactivating the tribunal.

The closure of the Rent Tribunal has led to a surge in unresolved rental issues and wasted state government resources, including the payment of salaries to redundant staff and a reduction in internally generated revenue. CDHR expressed concern over the lack of a proper avenue for citizens to address and resolve tenancy-related disputes, which has resulted in increased tensions and conflicts between landlords and tenants.

The absence of a dedicated forum for dispute resolution has created challenges for both landlords and tenants in navigating legal complexities, leading to an imbalanced and strained rental ecosystem. Therefore, CDHR appealed to Adeleke, urging him to recognize the negative impacts of the tribunal’s closure and take necessary steps to reactivate it.
