The Lagos State Government has said that the housing scheme in the Egan area of the state is near completion.
The was disclosed by the Permanent Secretary of Lagos State Ministry of Housing, Mr Kamar Olowoshago, when he led senior officials of the ministry to a site inspection.
The team toured Egan, Lagos State University (LASU) and Lateef Kayode Jakande Gardens at Igando.
According to him, the visit was to look at the state of ongoing projects and to also see how the completed ones are faring.
“We just went to Housing Scheme in Egan, few hours ago and I can tell you that it is about 90 per cent ready. We are trying to see how we can quickly complete the Cluster One so that we can release the homes to the allotees.
“We are looking at remaining things to be done to get it completed and I can tell you that in no distance time, Egan will be available for people to live in,” he said.
Olowoshago said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is doing all he could to provide mass housing for Lagosians in line with his THEMES agenda.
“At the ministry, we are greatly focussed on building more housing schemes for the benefit of the masses, we’re also concerned about1 maintenance of the structure and facilities put in place.
“I’m satisfied with the maintenance culture at LKJ Gardens where you have 492 home units; like we always say that maintenance is key to continue enjoying any facility put in place by the government and I think I’m satisfied with what I’m seeing.
“You can see for yourself, we’ve gone round and we’ve seen the water system and other aspects. We just went to the open space allocated for worship centres… it is our belief that the two religious groups will maintain decorum in going about their religious activities,” he said.
