We'll not discriminate against Federal Roads, says Abiodun

 

 

Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun says his administration will not discriminate in the construction of roads regardless of their status as far as they have potentials that will promote economic activities in the State

The governor who stated this when he inspected the ongoing construction of the 25 kilometres Illisan- Ago-Iwoye road, said his government would repair or construct any road that would bring in more investors and enhance the economy of the state.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the governor,” we will ensure that roads, regardless of whether they are owned by federal or state are given attention. We will ensure that we repair or construct them so that we can bring people to our state to come and invest which will in turn enhance the economy of our state and people.

“This Illisan-Ago-Iwoye road is a Federal Government road but it is one of the roads we feel that we should construct. It is a road that crisscrosses about four local government areas. It is one that leads to our International Airport and our premier university, that is the Olabisi Onabanjo University and it is an economic road that leads to Oyo and Osun states.

 

 

We'll not discriminate against Federal Roads, says Abiodun

 

 

 

 

“This road had been abandoned for about 12-16 years, thereby inflicting untold hardship on our people, and a lot of inconveniences to our students as well as affecting the economy of the communities along the road.

“The people don’t want to know whether the road belongs to the federal or state government. Each time they travel on a bad road, they geo-locate their pain to where their feeling is and as a responsive government, we are living up to their expectations”. Abiodun stated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said that the poor condition of the road had in the past affected the people who are mainly farmers as their farm produce perished before reaching the markets.

Abiodun who expressed satisfaction on the level and quality of work done on the road.

 

 

 

 

 

“In the course of our campaign, we promised that we will do this road to if we are voted for. Today, I am glad we have fulfilled that promise. Though this road is a dual carriageway, we have constructed one lane to ensure that at least a journey that takes about one and a half hour is now 15 minutes. It will also allow our people to take their farm produce to the market. This road has alleviated their pains and sufferings, and has now affected them positively, economically “, he noted.

The governor also stated that his administration has constructed the Ijebu-Ode-Epe, Sagamu-Abeokuta, and the ongoing construction of Atan-Lusada-Agbara roads, all, which belong to the federal government, maintaining that the roads are in line with the deliberate plan to ensure that development is equitably distributed to all parts of the state.

5 MAJOR FACILITIES A HOUSE FOR RENT SHOULD NOT LACK

5 MAJOR FACILITIES A HOUSE FOR RENT SHOULD NOT LACK

5 MAJOR FACILITIES A HOUSE FOR RENT SHOULD NOT LACK

5 MAJOR FACILITIES A HOUSE FOR RENT SHOULD NOT LACK

House owners complain about how people do not value their property but what they fail to do is assess the real problem(s). To be realistic, if people are not getting anything worthwhile from your property, you can’t blame them for their lack of enthusiasm.

 

I know a house where tenants suffer dryness for 8 months of the year from their well. The only time they get to enjoy water is that month of the year when it rains consistently and once the rain stops being frequent, they go back to experiencing drought.

 

 

 

 

 

Renting out your house is not the problem but the question is does it have all catchy facilities? Facilities go a long way in helping a rental property get tenants in no time.

Facilities are important. We can’t do without them. And any house lacking some of these facilities is not considered to be a complete house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are these facilities?

 

  1. Water supply

 

We all know how important water is to our daily lives. Having a house for rent which has a borehole is a big plus. This is essential especially in Nigeria where we rarely get water from the water cooperation, so making provision for that is one of those things people look out for before renting an apartment.

 

 

 

 

 

2.Security

 

A standard house for rent must have a security personnel guiding the property. Asides this, all security measures must be in place to the extent that not just anyone can gain access to the property. Security doors are not left out as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.Cleaners

 

A proper house for rent should have a cleaner that ensures the cleanliness of the environment. This facility is one of those things that attract potential tenants. You may feel the tenants are supposed to be the ones to do that like what most people grew up to know, however, things have changed and house owners need to put a class/standard on their property.

 

  1. Bathroom amenities

The plumbing fixtures, shower/tub should be in good condition. For older homes, if you know you will need to do a remodel or renovation in future, you should be prepared to know this reality when looking at the home, not after you move in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.Parking facilities

 

For tenants who own cars, parking is a very important facility. Homeowners for rent should consider a large parking space for their tenants. Unfortunately, parking spaces are no longer a priority in Nigeria. Some wouldn’t even mind building on a space meant for cars.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.Properly tiled floor

 

By now, it is expected that houses in Nigeria are meant to be tiled. Gone are the days when floors are left bare. In this present age, a house without a tiled floor is not considered modern.

 

  1. Gated compound

 

Unlike foreign countries, one of the things people look out for before renting a house is how tall the gate is. Now imagine that your property doesn’t have a gate at all, it might be a little difficult having interested people rent the place. Apart from security, people like to have their privacy. No random person on the street needs to know the activities going on in the compound.
