Bodija Housing Estate will be Ready in Two Months – Oyo Deputy Governor

The Deputy Governor of Oyo state, Barrister Abdul-raheem Adebayo Lawal, has revealed that the new Ultra-modern Bodija Housing Estate together with its Recreation Center will be ready before the end this current administration.

Afolayan revealed this during an inspection tour of the construction site of the Bodija Estate in Ibadan, the state capital.

The Deputy Governor decribed the estate’s construction as part of Governor Seyi Makinde’s initiatives to develop sporting facilities. The estate’s has mini-stadium with space for a football field, a long tennis court, a children’s play area, and a lounge, among other amenities.

Speaking to reporters shortly after the inspection, the Deputy Governor indicated that the project is nearly finished but that the chairman of the company will likely import more materials from Turkey to finish it.

He reaffirmed that he hoped the project will be ready for commissioning before the conclusion of the first term of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration, which is expected to be in the next two months.

Olaniyan who is in charge of monitoring the Housing Corporation, claims that he would put in a lot of effort to work with the contractors and see that commitments made are kept, making this another historic accomplishment for this government.

He emphasized that the facility had been in use for decades without the Oyo State Housing Corporation Bodija Estate making any concerted efforts to convert it into what it was intended for.

In addition to raising the estate’s worth, according to Lawal, the completion of the amenities will also be a significant source of income for the facilitators and the Oyo state government.

“This inspection tour is just to ascertain the level of work and the preparedness of the contractor to deliver the facility as soon as possible.

“Unfortunately, we have lost about a year out of the contracted period. So, we discount the period given to the contractor to deliver the project and we are trusting that in the next two and half months when we pay another visit to this place, we would be smiling”, he said.

Similarly, the deputy governor also re-inspected a 45-unit Project Scope and an 11-unit Wood et’al housing projects which is almost ready for commissioning.

The 11-unit Wood et’al project was the Housing Corporation’s guesthouse, which had been long abandoned until the inception of Makinde’s led administration, which didn’t allow the area to continue to deteriorate by entering a partnership with a developer “Wood et’al” that came with their money and Housing Corporation provided a land with a memorandum of understanding on the project with the setting of Bodija estate which is essentially for Housing scheme to sprout.
