The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki is billed to showcase his housing initiatives for the state at the 12th Abuja International Housing Show.
The Coordinator of the Show, Festus Adebayo told Housing TV on AIT in Abuja that the Governor will also serve as a Guest of Honour at the event.
He said ” at the inception of Governor Obaseki’s administration, he invited all the major stakeholders in the housing industry for interaction for inputs on how to provide affordable housing for the good people of Edo State and how to create a new city in Edo State.”
According to him ” as a follow up to that, the Governor of Edo State has resuscitated the Edo Property Development Company to a functioning Organization under the leadership of a highly respected professional in the real estate sector.”
Adebayo noted that “to us at the Abuja International Housing Show, this is commendable, as at today, the House of Assembly is working on bills that will create a conducive environment for real estate development in Edo State . In fact recently the Edo State Government signed an MoU with MIXTA Africa for the development of housing estate in Edo State.”
He noted that it is on record that the state government is working with the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) to return the workers to the National Housing Fund (NHF) contribution so that the state can be in the list of beneficiaries.
Adebayo said it was on the basis of the achievements of the Governor that he has been invited to speak at the 12th Abuja International Housing Show.
