Lagos- Mr Bosun Jeje, the Commissioner for Housing, on Friday called on private investors to join the ministry’ Public Private Partnership (PPP) .

He said at the handing over of Chief Anthony Enahoro Housing Estate, Shogunro Ogba Lagos that the PPP was aimed at delivering affordable houses to people.

According to him, this will ensure that affordable houses are delivered through the Lagos Mortgage Home Ownership Scheme (HOMS).

“Since the kick off of a new phase of housing for Lagos residents started in 2013, more than 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 ensure that Lagos middle class live in a decent environment.

“It is also a wake up call on the private investors to join the PPP programme of the ministry to houses for the people,’’ he said.

Jeje said that the estate would further reduce the huge housing deficits 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, however, requested state government to fulfill its promise of providing alternative power to the estate.

He also appealed to the government to facilitate the receipt of the residents’ copies of their Executed Deed of Mortgage.
Mr Micheal Enahoro, the immediate younger brother of Late Chief Anthony Enahoro, thanked the state government for honouring his late brother by naming the estate after him.

“The honour is of this world and it has humbled the family,’’ he said. (NAN)
