The Ogun State Government has started the construction of a housing estate at Iperu in Ikenne Council, which will provide 200 units of two bedroom expandable bungalows. The project is aimed at meeting the housing needs of low and medium income earners, especially in the Remo Zone Economic Hub, where the Gateway Agro-Cargo Airport is being developed.

Guardian Nigeria reported that the Special Adviser to the Governor on Housing, Jagunmolu Akande Omoniyi, said the housing estate will be executed through direct labour and will be fully equipped with all essential amenities, such as drainage, road network, security, lighting, water supply, playground, health and education facilities and fire service station. He said each unit will cost N8.5 million for the carcass option and N15 million for the fully finished option, with mortgage options available through Gateway Mortgage Bank.

Jagunmolu also said the project will create employment opportunities for over 5,000 artisans and 50 service providers (suppliers) on-site, and indirectly benefit over 20,000 citizens. He said the project is expected to be completed in six months.
