Speaking at the Blueroof Hall of the LTV8 at Agidingbi in Ikeja, Governor Babatunde Fashola said his administration had delivered on its promise to provide affordable homes for the people.
He said the government has made the homes available in one, two and three bedroom apartment types and designed them to fit into various income brackets.
Fashola said the homes are affordable because allotees can pay over 10 years, adding: “The homes are affordable because the interest rate will not exceed 9.5 per cent, no matter what happens to the Nigerian economy. Every mortgage payment you make monthly is not into a bottomless pit but towards owning your own home.”
He said there was 25 per cent discount on the cost of the houses, adding: “For cynics who say we have not done low cost housing, I want them to show me where I can find low cost land, low cost cement, low cost iron rod, low cost labour and low cost Naira.
“The people who elected me are not low cost people and I will not give them low cost houses. Whether rich or poor, they are not low cost people and they deserve the best that their votes and taxes can give.”
According to the governor, there is a difference between criticising and articulating a practical solution to a problem and implementing it.
He said: “Everybody can criticise the government, but not everybody can see a problem, find a solution to it, implement it and see it grow gradually.
“We did not promise low cost houses; we promised affordable houses. Our opponents are too preoccupied with the embarrassment of their failures that they are accusing us of what we did not promise.

“If our opponents can find the missing 20 billion dollars, let them go and use it to build low cost houses. Then the people would have an alternative.”
