Ogun to complete abandoned housing projects
The Ogun State Government has commenced work on uncompleted housing projects left by the previous administration in the state.
Some of the housing projects, according to a statement by the Information Officer in the state Ministry of Housing, Miss Seun Oyelade, are located in Abeokuta , Ayetoro, Sagamu, Ota and Ikenne.
Governor Ibikunle Amosun had recently approved funds for the completion of all uncompleted housing projects embarked upon by the administration of Otunba Gbenga Daniel.
The statement quoted the Commissioner for Housing, Mr. Dainel Adejobi, as telling journalists on Friday during an inspection of the housing projects in Abeokuta that the Amosun led-administration decided to complete the houses because government was a continuum and gave an assurance that the government was committed to providing affordable houses for the people.
He thanked the governor for the prompt approval and release of funds to facilitate the completion of the projects and assured that his ministry would ensure that workers on the different sites did qualitative jobs, which would earn them high level of patronage.
On the plans of the ministry to start new housing schemes, the commissioner was quoted as saying, “We thought it wise to complete the existing housing projects on ground before starting new ones.
“We have inherited all these from the previous administration, though they have not been completed, but we have taken it upon ourselves to go ahead and complete them.”
Adejobi enjoined those who had earlier deposited money for the houses to complete payment so that the structures could be handed over to them after completion.
