The Lagos State Government is committed to offering workers and residents excellent and reasonably priced homes. This was revealed by Mr. Kamar Olowoshago, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Housing, during a recent joint inspection of 36 housing units, including apartments with two and three bedrooms, at LagosHOMS LASU’s Ojo Campus in Lagos.
He stated that housing is a crucial requirement and that in order to ensure that workers are able to offer their best effort, the government gives the supply of appropriate housing for workers, the importance that it deserves.
Olowoshago noted that in a heavily urbanized area like Lagos, ensuring access to decent housing in a favorable environment could be difficult. However, he claimed that the government is aware of meeting the demands. According to him, the state government deliberately assigns a particular proportion of its subsidized residences to workers and provides rebates to improve accessibility.
As part of its determined policy to prioritize employee wellness, the university community was promised that the LagosHoms LASU project would carried out. He alleged that continuity in leadership will allow the government to further solidify its inclusive housing strategy, which is geared toward the underprivileged and working class.
The project should be owned by the university community, who should also protect it and use it effectively after it is finished, said the permanent secretary.
Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, Vice Chancellor of Lagos State University, thanked the state government for prioritizing the welfare of the university’s faculty and students.
