The Governor of Lagos, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, yesterday, commissioned Bayview Estate – a 100-unit housing project in Ikate-Elegushi, Lekki area of the State.
The housing project which is made up of 68 terraces of four bedrooms and 32 flats of three bedrooms, built on a total land area of 23,000sqm, is a joint venture project between the Lagos State Development and Property Corporation (LSDPC) and Misa Ltd.
The project was initiated when the governor was the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Lagos State Development and Property Corporation (LSDPC).
While speaking during the commissioning of the project, Governor Sanwo-Olu said his government is building for the upper-middle market and middle market, as well as the medium to low earners.
”We are in a dynamic environment and we will continue to work with our private sector developers, he expressed.
“There are so many other private sector schemes that we are jointly working with the Organised Private Sector to be able to have houses that are affordable and accessible to our citizens.
”We have promised our citizens and people that we will meet their housing needs. We have done 11 housing estates in over two and a half years that we came to government, and we still have a lot more that we are pushing,” the governor said.
Governor Sanwo-Olu during the event named a block of the LSDPC building after a GL-15 staff, the late Wakilu Hamzat, who died in the early hours of Wednesday, October 13, few hours before the inauguration of the Bayview Estate. He also announced State Government scholarships for the children of the deceased.
“We name Block C in honour of Engr Wakilu Hamzat. I enjoin our engineers to specially paint the block and we will be able to acknowledge his great work.
“Wakilu was somebody I knew personally. He will be greatly missed; but we thank God for his life. He has put in not less than 25 years in the service. The government will sponsor the education of his children through a scholarship”, Sanwo-Olu promised.
