The Federal government and Lagos state government have collaborated to build over 2000 home units in Alimosho and Ibeju Lekki local government areas.

This was disclosed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, Hon. Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, on Thursday, during the ongoing ministerial beirfing held in Alausa, Ikeja.

Akinderu-Fatai explained that the collaboration was on the Renewed Hope Housing Initiative of the federal government, adding that there is an ongoing discussion with a private finance institution to provide 800 units at Odola in Ikorodu division.

” All these initiatives are targeted at first time owners and low income earners, with mortgages ranging from 10 years to 15 yrs”, he said.

Akinderu-Fatai revealed that the old estates were re- evaluated with a plan to restore their infrastructure and maximize the available lands for greater home yeild.

He lamented non-compliance with extant rules put in place to promote peaceful coexistence of all allotees in the estates.

The Commissioner warned that the State Government would act resolutely by revoking the allocations of allotees who do not comply with agreements signed at the point of release of homes.

Akinderu-Fatai expressed the readiness of the government to enhance fairness and transparency in the allocation of housing units through the use of ballot in the allocation of some of its home units.

He added that the first balloting exercise will be conducted for Lagos State Public Affordable Housing, Idale in Badagry Division and LagosHoms at Odo-Onosa/Ayandelu in Epe Division on the 4th of June 2024 and that the process will be monitored by independent observers.
