The Commissioner for Housing in Lagos State, Hon. Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, has called on management and staff of the Ministry to rededicate themselves to duty and support the current administration to actualise the THEME Plus agenda of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Administration.

Addressing the staff at a meeting held today, Akinderu–Fatai said though, the housing sector has witnessed great success in housing delivery in the State, more zeal is required to ensure that the transformational journey of providing adequate housing for all, is achieved. 

He pointed out that the present administration is committed to changing the narrative of housing deficit and inadequate decent shelter through diverse strategies which include the utilisation of innovative building designs such as vertical construction of more homes as well as greater collaboration with private investors. 

He urged the staff to be ready to make sacrifices by putting in their best to actualise the ideas and innovations which would promote and deliver more homes to Lagosians.

Akinderu-Fatai also called on the staff to align with the spirit of the new administration by embracing the virtues of hard work, honesty, and selflessness.

He also advised the technical staff to bring to the attention of the State Government any contractor found using inferior or low-quality building materials for State housing projects, saying “It is the responsibility of every worker to ensure the safety and durability of every house delivered to the people”. 

In his remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Mr. Kamar Olowoshago said all hands must be on deck to increase the housing stock in the State.

He also cautioned all staff against the violation of established rules and regulations while wishing the Honourable Commissioner giant strides and a successful tenure, as he leads the team towards achieving the goals of more decent homes for all Lagosians.
