The Lagos state government says there are already plans to build 3,456 homes for public and private sector workers in Imota, near Ikorodu.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu made it known during the inauguration of a group of 480 Ibeshe LagosHoms houses in Ikorodu on Thursday.

Sanwo-Olu said the 3,456 houses, labeled “Imota Workers Town,” “would be built on 20 hectares of land in the Imota area of ​​the state.”

He said the state’s public and private sectors would access the housing units through a convenient mortgage system, which would span 15 years and a single-unit interest rate.

The governor described workers as the oil that lubricates the engine of prosperity in the state, adding that the needs analysis had shown that the working class was in greater need of housing than a larger percentage of workers.

According to him, the main objective of the current administration is to build houses within a livable environment and create livable communities where values ​​are protected and appreciated.

“Every receptive government knows the impact of good and decent housing on the well-being of the people.

“In keeping with our inclusive stance, we want to reach as many people as possible in their housing provision efforts.

That is why, among others, we are developing a special housing package for state workers. They are the oil that lubricates the engine of prosperity in the state.

”A higher percentage of workers are also in the procreative stage, forming future leaders. The best we can do is promote your access to home ownership.

“To this end, the state is concluding discussion with a private developer to build 3,456 homes labeled Imota Workers City, to be built on 20 hectares of land in Imota,” he said.

The governor reiterated his administration’s commitment to providing livable housing, adding that more housing would be built within a livable environment and livable communities would be created where values ​​were protected and appreciated.

“The houses are good but the houses are the latest. In developing and completing these schemes, we are thinking about the total well-being of the people.

”This will contribute to updating our vision of building a resilient and dynamic Lakes. We want our families to be raised in good environments and for children to be raised in good environments, so that the legacy of excellence can continue into the future, ”he said.

Sanwo-Olu, however, implored all potential beneficiaries of the new scheme to ensure that it was maintained and kept in good condition, to ensure a lasting legacy.

”For those who are still waiting for the opportunity to own a home, it won’t be long before their dreams come true.

“We continue working and I believe that with God’s help and his support, we still achieve more together,” he said.

Also speaking, the Housing Commissioner, Mr. Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, said that the state government’s efforts were to ensure that the housing deficit in the state was reduced and that decent housing was made available to all categories of residents.

“I must emphasize that the essence of all activities in the sector is to strengthen the built sector so that positive impacts are seen in the lives of all citizens.

“With more dignified housing, the family ecosystem is better conserved, living standards are improved and the beauty of the environment is enhanced,” said Akinderu-Fatai.

He said the state government had been working on finalizing all housing plans started but left unfinished in the state.

According to him, private sector involvement in housing development is also being encouraged as many serious investors are now collaborating with the state government.

He said that participation had led to all visible evidence of progress in the housing sector.
