Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has revealed that his administration is making remarkable progress with respect to housing provision in the State.

According to the Governor, this is evident in the number of quality housing schemes already delivered and those under construction spread across the State, mostly on Public-Private-Partnership arrangement.

Akeredolu explained that the REDEEMED agenda of his administration captures the need for development through massive infrastructure drive aided by developmental policy implementation.

The Governor spoke yesterday while commissioning a private housing estate in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

 His words; “Notable among our efforts to make housing more accessible to the residents of Ondo State is the creation of more Government Residential Areas across the State.  Furthermore, our administration has acquired and designed, ready for allocation to our people, 10 hectares of land in major towns across Ondo State all for the purpose of housing development.

“It is a known fact that housing, alongside food and clothing remains a fundamental human necessity without which man cannot survive. It is a known fact that housing provides shelter, security, safety, means for storage of other essentials, and is the setting for the communal life of the neighbourhood.

” The provision for housing is identified as one of the basic rights by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 25 of 1948.  The 11th point on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) also targets access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and an upgrade of slums to livable communities. Responsible and responsive governments across the globe have adopted the United Nations Declaration and the SDG as the basis for their policy and developmental thrust”.
