LASG To Begin Workers Village Construction, Vows To Remove All Illegal Structures

The Lagos State Government has expressed a determination to remove all contravening structures from the proposed site of its proposed Workers Village in order to commence construction work in earnest.


This was made known by the Honorable Commissioner for Housing, Hon. Moruf Akinderu-Fatai during a Stakeholder Engagement with the community leaders of Ejigbo, Ishefun and Ayobo in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State.


According to Akinderu-Fatai, the State Government is eager to deliver on its promises to the people in the area of housing as the issue of housing deficit is becoming very challenging due to rapid urbanization


Mr Akinderu-Fatai disclosed that the State Government has a target of constructing 608 two bedroom flats at Ishefun in Alimosho area specially for workers in order to reduce the financial barrier faced by this category of citizens in their aspiration for home ownership.


He further revealed that the expanse of land totaling 8.3 hectares was acquired by the State Government in 1999 for the sole purpose of constructing a housing estate with the collaboration of a foreign investor.



According to the Commissioner, the project could not fly because of the activities of land speculators who sold off part of the land and scared off the investors.

He then expressed the determination of the present administration to remove the obstructing structures and buildings so as to commence the project immediately.


Earlier the Chairman of the House Committee on Housing, Hon. Bisi Yusuf representing Alimosho Constituency pointed out to the community leaders that the proposed housing scheme is for the further development of the area and that it will yield greater dividends than the selfish ends served by the encroachers.


He emphasized the fact that government will take back the land from the encroachers by demolishing the obstructing structures as the land in question rightfully belonged to the State Government.


The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Housing Mr. Wasiu Akewusola who was also present at the meeting overruled the possibility of compensation to the owners of the contravening structures saying that the land was illegally acquired by the people. He then advised Lagosians to be wary of purchasing lands without proper verification with the appropriate agencies of Government.


Speaking on behalf of the community leaders, Chief Lateef Sekoni expressed the readiness of the leaders and elders of the communities to support the developmental efforts of the State Government.
