“The Ogun State Housing Corporation (OGSHC) has begun the re-development of a 3,130 square metre (sqm) site on Ibara GRA-Onikolobo link road in Abeokuta, the state capital.”- The Nation
Its General Manager and Special Adviser to the Governor on Housing Development, Olajumoke Akinwunmi, spoke yesterday in Abeokuta.
Akinwunmi said the project is among initiatives of the Ibikunle Amosun administration to provide affordable housing and ensure urban renewal.
He said the re-development of the site at Ibara, which was proposed to have 12 premium units of four-bedroom townhouses, had been designed and was being built to meet best standards by using concrete finished polystyrene walls to achieve durability, sound and heat proof.
In a statement by his media aide, Mr. Shakirudeen Bashir, the general manager noted that the project is intended to give value to home owners by harnessing the benefits of communal living, with each house having its access gate.
Akinwunmi said: “When finished, each unit will have three large en suite bedrooms and a maid’s room attached to the rear. They will be delivered with good specifications – internally and externally. The project has generated a lot of interest and elicited purchase offers.”
The general manager said that the project was being executed by a partnership between government and Deluxe and Partners.
The Chief Executive of Deluxe and Partners, Oladele Olaleye, assured residents that the project will be delivered early next year.
