Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday, said seven housing schemes would be completed and delivered before December this year, adding that these would increase the housing stock in the state by 3,004 units.
He spoke during the 2020 World Habitat Day held at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa.
He disclosed that within the last 16 months, his administration had completed and inaugurated a number of housing schemes, including the Lateef Kayode Housing Estate, Igando; Courtland Villas, Lekki; and Lekki Apartments, Ikate Elegushi.
The governor added that 303 residents had become homeowners at the Oba Adeboruwa, Lateef Jakande and Epe housing schemes under the policy.
While urging residents to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the housing programme, Sanwo-Olu said steps had been taken to remove bottlenecks associated with housing delivery in the state by embracing the mortgage option to home ownership.
“I seek the cooperation of all Lagosians towards the achievement of the Lagos of our dreams, a liveable and sustainable city where everyone fulfils their legitimate aspirations irrespective of class, race or creed,” he said.
