Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has presented apartment keys as resettlement compensation to14 families displaced during the construction of the Pen-Cinema Bridge in Agege area of the metropolis.
Gov. Sanwo-Olu presented the apartment keys to the beneficiaries on Wednesday, at the unveiling of ‘Greater Lagos LBIC Apartments’ inside the existing Ijaiye Housing Estate at Pen-Cinema.
The ‘Greater Lagos LBIC Apartments’ are four new buildings comprising 48 units of 2 and 3 bedroom flats, and four units of 4-bedroom maisonette, making 52 apartments in total.
Sanwo-Olu took to his Twitter page and tweeted thus:
Today, I commissioned and handed over the Greater Lagos LBIC Apartments, Ijaiye-Ogba to the new occupants.
This housing project was conceptualized and constructed by our administration to further bridge the housing deficit in Lagos.
I am particularly excited about this project because during the construction of the Pen Cinema bridge, some residents were displaced as a result of the project. We made a promise to restore their houses and as they said today, they thought the promise of restoring them to the place they had resided for over 30 years would not be fulfilled.
With this project we have again restored the confidence of our people in government and it has confirmed that indeed, Lagos State Government is a promise keeper.
