Ijora- Badia, a Lagos slum, will soon wear a new look as the  Lagos State government is set to construct 1,008 modern housing units under a home ownership scheme for the area.

Housing Commissioner Mr  Bosun Jeje told a stakeholders’meeting with residents of Badia East at the National Theatre Complex in Lagos that the proposed houses were part of the government’s effort in transforming Lagos into a mega city.

He said the first phase of 288 units would be completed in December 2014 to provide affordable housing to the people.

The commissioner said: “To be able to achieve our vision of making Lagos State Africa’s model mega city and global financial hub that is safe, secure, functional and productive, in this instance, require a collective effort. We must ensure the eradication of filthy, unhealthy living environment.”

Lagos State Solicitor-General, Mr Lawal Pedro (SAN), who was at the meeting, said compensation would be paid to residents whose structures were affected by the redevelopment of the area.

Pedro said: “The position of the government is to sanitise the place and makes it habitable otherwise it will continue to be a slum. The development process is in phases and the government, out of its magnanimity has come out to say it will compensate residents who are affected.

“And mind you, most of the properties that are there are illegal properties which makes them ordinarily not entitled to any form of compensation. That is part of the exercise the technical committee is going to do by making sure they do proper enumeration and see that the people who are really affected are adequately compensated.”

Special Adviser, Ministry of Housing, Mr. Jimoh Ajao said the housing estate would be built on 10.04 hectares of land and it would comprise of 1,008 housing units made up of 29 blocks of multi-tenement apartments, shopping and office complexes.

“Each block will be comprised of 48 units of different housing types made up of 12 units of mini flats, 12 units of one bedroom flats, 12 units of two bedroom flats and 12 units of three bedroom flats,” he said.

Ajao said the project will be done in phases to minimise the impact of the displacement on the people. He said the construction of the first phase, which is to comprise six blocks made up 288 units of flats will be done on 3.12 hectares of land.

Ajao said contract for the first phase of construction was signed in March, 2013 while completion date has been set for December 2014.

He said when construction takes off it would provide employment for artisans such as welders, carpenters, plumbers, bricklayers, among others in the area.
