Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has disclosed that about 200 units of semi-detached, detached, fully detached duplexes and terraces under construction at the Muhammadu Buhari Estate, Abeokuta are at advanced stages of completion and would be delivered before the end of the year.

Abiodun also said that his administration is working towards providing affordable houses to all strata of society.

He stated this while fielding questions from newsmen after he inspected the ongoing construction at the estate, located along Kobape Road, Abeokuta.

Abiodun noted that some of the buildings, under construction, have been fully paid for while part payments have been made for others, stressing the need for the contractors to step up work to meet the completion dateline.

“The reason I came here today is to see how we are doing and to see how I can reconcile the date of delivery with the level of progress on the project. I am impressed, but I think the contractors can work harder.

“I have instructed the Ogun State Property Investment Corporation (OPIC) to immediately call a meeting of all the contractors and read to them the riot act. We want to finish this project in no distant future,” the governor said.

Abiodun added that the estate, which is being constructed under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement, in line with his administration’s vision, has the state providing the land and the needed infrastructure, while the contractors, real estate companies and builders build the structures and sell them for mutual benefits between the state and the other parties.
