As part of its rebuilding mission across the nooks and crannies of Ogun State, an arm of housing construction in the state, Ogun State Property Investment Corporation, OPIC, has commenced the construction of a new estate at the OPIC Estate, Isheri along Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The new estate, our correspondent reliably gathered will be known as MTR Gardens.
It will consist of over 600 units of 2-3 bedroom flats, according to a statement made available from the OPIC Public Relations office headed by Mr Boye.
Our correspondent further gathered that preliminary work on the site was fully completed in July.
While taking newsmen round the site, the Managing Director, OPIC, Barr. Babajide Odusolu said “the government is set to deliver value at an affordable price through careful balance of efficient design and planning without compromising quality.”
He stated further that “MTR Gardens is designed as a multi-zonal gated community and will, on completion have a variety of infrastructure and services.
“Facilities being provided include a club house with gym, squash court, swimming pool, water works providing potable water, power station for efficient electricity supply and a modern supermarket which will equally be beneficial to the surrounding estates.
“A key element of the development is the construction of a new four lane dual carriageway which will resolve the accessibility challenges bedevilling River Valley Estate and the rest of the schemes within the OPIC Isheri axis.”
Odusolu reminded the people of the state that delivery of housing and massive investment in infrastructure was one of the key programmes of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun-led administration.
He boasted that the people will enjoy more dividends of democracy from the government as the second term journey begins, assuring the people of government-people friendly administration as experienced during the governor’s first term in office.
