The House of Assembly Committee on Housing bemoaned the assembly for delaying the delivery of the housing project, that the government would not condone such attitude towards the project.

Speaking at a joint inspection of the housing scheme by the Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Housing and the state Commissioner for Housing, Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, the Chairman of the Committee, Bisi Yusuf expressed his displeasure over the unnecessary delay in the delivery of the housing scheme while also lambasting some of the contractors for the shoddy work being done.

On his part, the Commissioner for Housing, Moruf Akinderu-Fatai expressed delight at the stance of the House Committee.
