The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has promised the residents of the State of affordable housing in 2016.
Governor Amosun stated this in Abeokuta while presenting the 2016 Appropriation bill to the House of Assembly.
He said that provision had been made for the completion and commissioning of Orange valley Estate, adding that the second serviced Estate, Plainfield Estate now renamed, Hannah Idowu Dideolu (H.I.D) Awolowo Estate would be given priority attention in the next fiscal year.

Amosun stated further that A.A.K. Degun Estate, Laderin is nearing full completion, explaining that provision had been made for its early completion in the 2016 budget.

He said New Dawn Estate in Agbara which would provide 55 Terrace bungalows and 50 detached bungalows was almost ready for commissioning, adding that Government had paid full compensation to the owners of farm lands and properties acquired for the construction of Ultra-Modern Housing Estate at Kobape in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the State.
He stated that as part of the ongoing urban renewal initiative, the State Government has flagged off the construction of the 600 Units MTR Garden Estate, in Isheri, noting that the Estate on completion, would enable the development of one Kilometer carriageway that would ease road access at OPIC Estate, Isheri.
On the proposed Light Railway Project, the Governor said the project is closer to becoming a reality.
 “We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the construction giants, Messrs CCRCC/CCECC that will handle the project. We expect the ground breaking to take place in 2016. This will be a significant step in our urban renewal drive and also boost commercial activities in the State”, Governor Amosun said.
