The Osun State Government in collaboration with the African Nations Development Programme has concluded arrangements to build 5,000 housing units of two-bedroomed bungalows in five major towns in the state to support the efforts of the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Governor Rauf Aregbesola was quoted to have said this during the visit of the representatives of the ANDP to him in Osogbo .

The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Lands and Physical Planning, Mr. Akintunde Akinajo, said that about 400 hectares of land had been provided for the housing project and other infrastructures in the five towns.

He said the housing units would be built in Ede, Iwo, Ikirun, Ilesa and Ila-Orangun, stressing that the state government had held series of meetings with traditional rulers and other relevant groups in the five towns in a bid to carry all stakeholders along in the project.

He noted that all the required documentations had been communicated to the ANDP on the selected sites.

While appreciating the ANDP for choosing Osun for the development project, the governor assured the group of his total support.

He said the current administration in the state had invested so much in the development of infrastructure and others, saying this had created a framework upon which development could be built.

The Country Director of the ANDP, Mr. Eze Ifeanyichukwu, stated that the housing projects of 5,000 housing units of two-bedroomed bungalows would have facilities such as hospitals, schools , police stations and markets.
