Makinde Lauds Lawal For Oyo Housing Corporation Renovation
The Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, has commended the Chairman of Oyo Housing Corporation, Chief Bayo Lawal for the facelift the corporation currently enjoys.
Makinde made the commendation while receiving members of the Nigeria Institute of Architecture (NIA) who recently paid him a courtesy visit at his office.
Speaking, Makinde said: “It is deliberate that we brought the chairman of Housing Corporation. He is not an architect but a lawyer. And since he got in, he has been trying to refurbish the entire building, which has not been done for several years. So, I am sure that with own team as well, they won’t mind to collaborate with the NIA on some of the new areas they are trying to open up.
“Bodija is the first modern housing estate in the entire country. We were even ahead of Lagos then, but now we are just at the back. We are trying to pick things up, and having the opportunity to collaborate, I believe he will assist us.”
