The Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society is set to provide 80 housing units for its members.
ICPC President Pro Bolaji Owasanoye at the opening ceremony in Abuja on Friday expressed his joy and praised the initiative.
Owasanoye warned the contractor and FIcial Service providers to guarantee the standard, reminding them that the Commission had a history of arresting those who decided to cut corners.
“I am happy to be a part of this historic moment and to give our full support to ICPC staff in achieving one of the key needs of all people seeking refuge.
“I want to congratulate the Gefen Group for being the partner in this laudable project.  But I also want to give a warning that we have a history of arresting our contractors in the past,” he said.
He pointed out that, in general, housing projects suffered cost overruns for different reasons.
“Not only because of the sponsor's cash problem, but also because of contractors trying to be too smart about using substandard materials, cutting corners, etc.
“Official Service Providers, due to their lustful desire for profit, sometimes undermine projects under them.
“When I have a meeting with the executives, I tell them that they must review all the documents.
“Compliance with the disbursement on time.  When it's time to fund the project, don't tell stories,” he warned.
The ICPC chief thanked the cooperative for finding him a worthy heritage after him.
Mr. Wakili Musa, Chairman of the ICPC cooperative, said the project was conceived with the aim of filling the housing shortage facing Abuja.
According to him, the project covers a total of 1.36 hectares of land that is designed to house 32 2-bedroom apartment units, 32 3-bedroom apartment units and 16 4-bedroom apartment units in a total of 80 units of apartments.
“The estimated total cost of construction of the farm is N1 billion plus for a period of 18 months to complete.
For his part, Mr. Nosa Edeko, CEO of Gefen Group, said that the group would put everything together professionally and technically to ensure that its people live in luxury and comfort.
Mr. Wale Jayaisemi of Infinity Mortgage Trust said that they would ensure transparent disbursement from the beginning to the end of the project.
The Nigerian News Agency  reports that the proposed property is located at Kagini in Kubwa, Abuja, named after ICPC President Bolaji Owasanoye.
