THE Federal Controller of Housing in Lagos State, Mrs Sarah Alawode, on Thursday said the Federal Government was committed to quality infrastructure delivery in its estates and all communities in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Alawode said this during inspection of land, housing and road projects in Lagos..
She assured Lagos residents that reported infrastructure problems including roads, water, electricity, primary health care and schools were being handled by the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Housing.
“We cater for all the communities irrespective of whether they are federal government estates or not.
”Wherever members of the public reside, they are entitled to water, road, light, roads to alleviate thier suffering,” she said.
The controller said that the ministry had provided public water supply across all Local Governments in the state and had sunk 30 boreholes recently across councils.
While inspecting ongoing reconstruction of roads and drains in Nubi Close, Ebute Meta, she instructed the contractors on the project to expand the drains and construct speed bumps to improve safety of residents.
Residents of the area and Pastor Samuel Ilesanmi of the Christ Apostolic Church on Nubi Close in Ebute Meta expressed joy and thanked the federal government for the project.
“The road was terrible, but we thank God that Federal Government remembered us to construct this road,” Ilesanmi said.
