Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo on Thursday reiterated the commitment of his administration to bridge the housing gap in the state.
He explained that his administration was happy to start the project because easy access to affordable housing was one of the cardinal programmes for the good of the people.
“I want to assure you all that our government will not depart from this noble path, but with renewed vigour and commitment we will pursue our housing programmes to its logical conclusion.
“We are not oblivious of the staggering statistics of housing deficit in Nigeria and in our state which are already in the public domain.
“Nevertheless, we are working assiduously to address this shortage through institutionalised structures, mortgage financing and private sector funding,” he said.
