Lagos State Commissioner for Housing Mr. Gbolahan Wasiu Lawal–Akapo has inspected projects under his Ministry.  He was accompanied by the Permanent Secretary, Mr. Olatunji Odunlami and Special Adviser to the governor on Housing, Mrs. Mudirat Giwanson.

He visited Lagos State Homes Ownership Mortgage Scheme (LagosHOMS) in Omole Estate, Igando, Oko–Oba, Agege, Chief Anthony Enahoro Housing Estate Ogba, Omole Phase 2, and Magodo.

According to the commissioner, the tour was to familiarise him with the Lagos HOMS sites and to see the level of work done. “I want to see all the sites that we have, where construction works are ongoing,” he explained.

In a chat with The Nation, the Commissioner expressed satisfaction with the level of work done so far, assuring that his future plan is to look at the projects left by the last administration, review and appraise and come up with a strategy to improve on what was met in order to  close the housing gap between the high earners and the low income earners because ‘’the high income earners can always build their own houses.

The commissioner, who admonished all allottees and would want them to be calm  as they would have the opportunity to benefit from the state’s housing scheme, reiterated the commitment of the administration to put  in its best  to provide housing for the people of the state.

“Lagos has a very large percentage of middle class people, we cannot afford to ignore them,’’ he said.

Lawal-Akapo disclosed that there will be an analysis on where there are demands and where there are no demands for houses, and the ministry will come up with the right assumptions for the future, even as he said the government will come out with analytical facts in providing an appropriate housing policy for the people of Lagos State.
