….says pandemic caused delay in delivering
The Ogun State Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun has admitted the state was working towards providing affordable housing to Ogun indigenes.
The governor however blamed covid 19 pandemic for causing the delay in delivering the 3phase project, due to movement restrictions.
In a statement obtained by Tropic Reporters Correspondent on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday night, Governor Abiodun said, “we are working to provide affordable housing in line with our social welfare vision.”
“The delay in delivering the 3-phase project was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions.”
“But when the world overcomes this invisible enemy, we will replicate such projects in cities like Ilaro, Ijebu-Ode, Sagamu, Ota and Ibafo.”
“We opted for not awarding the construction to any contractor, so we got experienced workers through direct labour and trained others to work with the State Ministry of Housing”, he concluded.
