The Lagos State Government and the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) have assured of its determination to synergize and collaborate to provide affordable housing for Lagos residents and Nigerians in the diaspora.

The promise was made by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Hon. Oyetunde Ojo, during a courtesy visit by management of FHA to the Governor on Saturday at the Lagos House, Marina.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said the vision of the Federal Housing Authority is in line with the objective of the Lagos State Government to provide housing needs for various strata of the economy, noting that his administration in the last four and half years has commissioned 18 different housing estate projects in different parts of the State to reduce housing deficits in Lagos.

The governor said,

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who promised to support the FHA with land, which he described as ‘our (Lagos) own oil’, charged the federal agency to hit the ground running once it got the approval.

Speaking earlier, Hon. Oyetunde Ojo, said affordable housing for Nigerians is very key in the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.

The MD/CEO of the FHA also commended the giant strides of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration in key sectors, particularly in the areas of infrastructures like the Blue and Red Rail lines and the Lekki – Epe Expressway, as well as the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
