Jeje made this call in Lagos at the Commemoration of the Handover of Chief Anthony Enahoro Housing Estate, Shogunro, Ogba.
According to him, this will continue to ensure that affordable houses are delivered through the Lagos Mortgage Home Ownership Scheme (Lagos HOMS).
“Since the kick-off of a new phase of housing for Lagos residents in 2013, over 1000 houses have been built and delivered on mortgage.
“This latest addition, 20 residential blocks of 240 housing units of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom flats, will continue to ensure that Lagos middle class live in a decent environment.
“It is also a wake-up call to private investors to join the PPP programme of the ministry, to build houses for the people,” he said.
Jeje said the official handover of the estate to the residents would further reduce the huge housing deficit in the state.
Mr Adam Adedimeji, the Chairman of the Estate’s Residents Association, said that the Lagos HOMS had put a smile on the faces of the beneficiaries of the housing units.
Adedimeji said it had also removed a lot of problems involved in building personal houses in the state.
He said, however, that the state government should fulfill its promise of providing alternative power supply to the estate.
Adedimeji said the state government should also facilitate the receipt of the residents’ copies of their executed Deeds of Mortgage.
The residents’ chairman urged also that the state government should help in providing adequate security in the estate.
Mr Michael Enahoro, the immediate younger brother of Late Chief Anthony Enahoro, thanked the Lagos State Government for the honour done to his late brother in naming the estate after him.
