According to Chigelu the visit was to ascertain the level of completion of the estate, in readiness for its commissioning.

The minister was taken round the estate by the Managing Director  FHA, Sen. Gbenga Ashafa, in the company of the Authority’s Executive Director, Project Implementation, Mr Sam Omoke.

He called on management to come up with the exact quantity of work remaining to be put in the estate, to determine the actual time for the final completion of the project.

He  inspected the nine remaining blocks of flats that were at various stages of completion.

The breakdown of the blocks awaiting completion shows 1 Block of 2 Bedroom Flat at plastering and fixing of windows stage, 7 Blocks  of 1 Bedroom, at fixing of doors, tilling and external works stage.

Sambo, however, observed the need for adjustments in the external finishing in some blocks. He also observed that the trees planted in the estate were still at the nursery stages.

He, therefore, advised that efforts should be made to plant trees at sites as soon as construction  started, so that the trees could grow as the project progresses.
