Today, we see the result of persistence and commitment as the Administration of Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu successfully delivers a project that had defied all efforts at completion for over two decades.

The Egan – Igando Mixed Housing Scheme project, Egan is located in Ikeja Division of the State. It is situated along Agric Road, Egan in Igando – Ikotun Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State, on a land area of 17.358 Hectares. This project was conceived to provide decent accommodation for sub-urban dwellers. It was proposed to consists of 101 blocks of 846 home units made up of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms apartments.

This project was started by Lagos State Ministry of Housing in 2001 with 33 Blocks (18 in 1) of Two (2) Bedrooms. By the year 2002, most of the blocks had been abandoned at different stages of construction due to pausity of funds. This was the status until April 2006, when former Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency Bola Ahmed Tinubu, during his second term in office, transferred the project to the Lagos Building Investment Company (LBIC) in partnership with the Ministry of Housing through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement.
After the take-over of the project, the Lagos Building Investment Company (LBIC) constructed Type A & B blocks, however, the project became stalled again. To increase the chances of completion, the then Governor of the State, His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola directed the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure to take over the project in the year 2013.
In year 2016, the project was returned back to the Ministry of Housing by the then Governor, His Excellency, Akinwunmi Ambode. The Ministry of Housing divided the project into clusters for ease of completion.

Cluster 2 ( 6 in 1) of
Today, it is a thing of joy that the first cluster of the scheme comprising of 51 Blocks ( 6 in 1) Two (2) Bedroom apartments and 5 Blocks (6 in 1) Three (3) Bedroom apartments are now being commissioned today
The Egan-Igando housing project has modern facilities which makes it a decent housing Estate for Lagosians.

Work will fully commence soon on the other clusters. It is our hope that the dream of all who bought into this vision will soon be actualized.
