Barely 24 hours to the first year anniversary in office, the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu today commissioned 264 units of flat in Lekki.
This he noted was based on his promise to build affordable and accessible houses for Lagosians.
The Governor said his administration is positioned to bring about even development to every part of the State, with a view to making Lagos achieve the 21st Century economy.
In his words: “we need to continue to genuinely think through affordable housing, and that is our commitment for our people, because it’s not everybody that will have the ability to pay for housing estates such as this.”
“I inherited this amongst several other projects and the critical challenge we had to contend with was lack of funds. To surmount this challenge, we had to look towards the private sector and adopted the public-private partnership (PPP) model”
The Commissioner for Housing, Moruf Akinderu-Fatai praised the foresight and confidence of Governor Sanwo-Olu on the success of the project noting that he left no one in doubt of his commitment to providing affordable houses for Lagosians.
Sanwo-Olu while congratulating the new allottees urged them to put the facilities into good use.
The estates, Courtland Luxury Villas and Ikate Elegushi Lekki Apartments, ranges from one bedroom to four bedrooms targeted at the upper and middle income earners working around Lekki and Victoria Island of Lagos.
