Lagos Restates Commitment To Provision of Decent Housing For Workers
The Lagos State Government has restated its commitment to providing decent, habitable and conducive homes for workers of various categories in the State. Speaking at the joint inspection of 36 home units comprising two and three bedrooms home apartments at LagosHOMS LASU, Ojo Campus recently, the
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Housing, Mr. Kamar Olowoshago said the State Government is focused on
its resolve to provide good homes for staff of its various establishments.
"Housing is a paramount need and to
ensure that workers are in a position to give their best, the State Government accords due significance to the provision of decent homes for workers. The issue of access to good accommodation in a conducive environment can be challenging in a highly urbanised state like Lagos, hence, the State Government under
Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu is always mindful of addressing this basic need", he noted.
Olowoshago stated that it is for this reason that the State Government intentionally allocates a certain percentage of its subsidised
homes to workers and gives rebates to increase accessibility.
