Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and affordable housing in the state


Gov ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State is poised more than ever and is on the verge of fulfilling his dream of bequeathing Enugu people with affordable housing before the expiration of his tenure of office. His government has severally embarked on many housing estates across the state since he came to power.
It is truly heart warming that under Hon Chiemelie Agu led Enugu State Housing Development Corporation, the narrative about house deficiencies has really changed for good. Many estates, both private and public have sprang up in and around Enugu metropolis.
Before the coming of Gov. Ugwuanyi’s government, after New Market Enugu, no housing estate can be sighted until you get to 9th mile, but today, the story has changed. There are no fewer than five housing estates from New Market to 9th mile.

In Oji River local government area, a massive land area is being developed now courtesy of Gov Ugwuanyi  and Enugu State Housing Development Corporation ( Hon. Chukwuemelie Agu )The land size is so massive that when it is fully developed, it will accommodate over 20,000 units of buildings of various sizes. The land area have been laid desolate for so long without visible economic development in the area. At best it has served as a forest and as an ancestral land. The visionary government of Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has found this area extremely expedient to put some structures on it to engender economic development for the people and the state in general.

Development of a massive housing estate such as the one under hand will actually open up the entire Ugwuoba axis of Oji River. The estate will boast of housing units, schools, police station, hospitals, markets, mini power station,  well reticulated pipe borne water, fire station, eagle eye security outfit, recreational centres, etc. Imagine an expanse of estate designed as a one stop estate for comfort and affordability. That is what Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is doing at Ugwuoba at the moment. What he needs now is our support, prayers, encouragement and goodwill to accomplish this task before him.

Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has also built other estates like those in Onu Ogba Nike, Akpuoga Nike, Afor Ezza, Workers Estate at Idodo area, etc. He has also plotted Alulu Nike in the part of development. The price of a parcel of land in Alulu Nike is hot and their land is in hot demand. I still remember that before he came into office, a plot of land at Ugwuomu Nike is just around N50,000, when he created layouts and plotted the land, he made it accessible and appealing, he created so many estates there and the place opened up in a twinkle of an eye. Today, a plot of land there is not below a million naira.

Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has opened up Enugu East LGA and has made it appealing. There are over 20 estates from Vivian estate to Ugwuogo round about. There is a Premier estate, Journalist estate, Victory estate, etc. There are public and private estates springing up on both sides of the road. That has opened up the whole place. That particular area has opened up to Ekwegbe in Igbo Etiti LGA. Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has parcelated a lot of bushes that have been posing threat to the people and turned them into estates.

Estates like WTC estate, Rangers estates, Hard Break estate, Zion estate, and so many others have been completed and are being habited already.

We are praying that God gives Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi the grace and resources to complete these projects and can say in a loud voice that Enugu State is in the hand of God.
