Emulate Ogun To Reduce Housing Deficit In Nigeria-Buhari Tells Other States

 President  Mohammadu Buhari has asked other states in Nigeria to emulate the initiative of the Prince Dapo Abiodun administration  in Ogun State, order to reduce housing deficit in the country

Buhari  gave the advice  while commission 527 units of affordable housing project located at Kobape in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the State as well as Kings Court Estate in Abeokuta and Gateway City Gate on the newly reconstructed 42kilometres  Sagamu-Abeokuta Expressway.

  The President who had earlier during his recent one day working visit to the state ,inaugurated a 14 kilometer Ijebu-Ode-Mojoda-Epe road stated  that the project would enhance the socio-economic development of the State, said “the road will serve as a relief for people living in Lagos State and those who want to travel through the road to link the eastern part of the country”.

Speaking, Governor Abiodun pointed out that the housing project was one of the many his administration had done in places like Idi-Aba in Abeokuta, Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode, Ilaro and Ota to cater for both low and middle income earners.

His words, “our housing project is carried out through direct labour to create employment opportunities for the youth in the area, and it has changed the landscape and the commercial activities in the areas”.

On the Ijebu-Ode-Mojoda-Epe road, Abiodun said it would help in the industrialisation drive of his administration and also decongest Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Speaking earlier, Commissioner for Housing, Jagunmolu Akande Omoniyi stated that provision of affordable houses was in phases, assuring subscribers that the government would build more houses to accommodate others. 

Also speaking on behalf of the artisans who were involved in the construction of the estate, Mr. Akinwande Anjorin appreciated the Governor for counting them worthy to be part of the success story.
