Abuja, Sept. 3, 2020 Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun says his administration will provide additional 1,870 housing units across the state as part of deliberate efforts to meet the accommodation needs of inhabitants of the state.
Abiodun made this known when he addressed State House correspondents at the end of a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
He disclosed that the state government had already completed the construction of 500 units of its housing programme in the state.
According to him, each unit of the structure is being sold at between five million naira and six million naira.
He commended President Buhari for his leadership qualities and vision, describing him as ”extremely organised leader”.
The governor said: ”Let me first say to you that Mr President is so meticulous. He is so methodical. He is extremely organised.
”And at any point in time any governor wants to see the President, all you have to do is to ask him.
”The President will give you audience. He will give audience and he will take note.
”For those of us that know the President, he is someone who believes in constituted authority.
”When a governor says these are my problems, the President takes it to heart and he follows through the details.
”One cannot ask for a better captain of our ship.
That is what I have seen in Mr President and that is what I probably think most people will not know because Mr President is not a man of many words,”
Naija247news reports that the governor had earlier updated President Buhari on the achievements and challenges of his administration in the past 15 months.
