Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has confirmed the significant progress made in the construction of approximately 200 units of semi-detached, detached, fully detached duplexes, and terraces within the Muhammadu Buhari Estate in Abeokuta.
During an inspection of the ongoing construction of the 200 units in Buhari Estate, situated along Kobape Road in Abeokuta, Governor Abiodun conveyed his vision of ensuring accessible housing for residents of Ogun State. He emphasized that some buyers have already paid in full for some of the homes under construction. Meanwhile, others have seen partial payments, underscoring the urgency for contractors to accelerate their efforts to meet the completion deadline.

He expressed his commitment to delivering these homes to the people before the end of the year. This would be part of his administration’s pledge to provide affordable housing options for all segments of society. Governor Abiodun praised the progress made but urged the contractors to redouble their efforts. He announced his directive to the Ogun State Property Investment Corporation (OPIC) to convene a meeting with all contractors. This was to ensure that they fully committed to expediting the project’s conclusion. His objective is to see this project through to fruition in the near future.
The governor affirmed his government’s dedication to making homes available at reasonable prices. He envisions transforming the construction of 200 units in Buhari Estate into a premier residential area. It will serve as a model for similar developments across the state.
Governor Abiodun also took the opportunity to clarify the challenges faced by the estate from its inception. He revealed that the previous administration had failed to fulfill its contractual obligations with the infrastructure contractors, which had nearly resulted in the forfeiture of the property. Under his leadership, these issues are being addressed, and the estate is on track to become a symbol of accessible and affordable housing in Ogun State.
