Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, Prince Gbolahan Lawal has affirmed that the state government was committed to reducing the housing deficit which stands at about 2.5 million following the on-going construction of housing estates across the state.

Lawal, accompanied by the Permanent Secretary and Directors in the Ministry, made this known during an inspection tour of some housing estates at Ibeshe and Igbogbo, both in Ikorodu Division.

According to him, many units would soon be ready for allocation to first-time homeowners under the Rent-To-Own or Rental Housing policies of the state government, and admonished contractors handling the housing schemes to expedite action on the projects.

He also enjoined the contractors and the supervising technical staff to work as a team so that the government would deliver on its promises to Lagos residents in the area of housing, attributing the inability to meet the housing needs of Lagosians to the daily influx of people into the state.

Lawal, however, gave assurance that the state government would leave no stone unturned in ensuring that Lagos residents have access to affordable housing units that are convenient, safe and within employment areas.

He enjoined residents to always pay their taxes regularly so that government could do more in the provision of housing and other essential infrastructure.
