….. Resolves To Implement His Housing Master Plan In Anambra
By Christian ABURIME
Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo has reiterated his determination to implement the present administration’s housing master plan in the state.
The Governor dropped the hint during an inspection tour to Awka Millennium City and Golf Residency Awka; two estates that fit into the Governor’s master plan for contemporary housing, appropriate for the twenty-first century.
M-P Infrastructure, the developers of Awka Millennium City is a partnership being executed with Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency, ANSIPPA, while Sagez Nigeria Limited is the Contractor handling the project.
The Millennium City has 750 proposed residential homes, a beautiful designed entrance with standard walkways, business districts, independent power plant that will generate constant power supply, efficient water supply, fiber optics, and the presence of an ideal leisure, entertainment, and hospitality hub where residents can relax and enjoy.
Governor Soludo pointed out some notable improvements since he last visited the Millennium City two years ago and commended the Proprietor of M-P Infrastructure, Dr. Clem Nwogbo and his team, for embarking on the significant project.
The Governor maintained that it should serve as an example of what a modern estate should be, urging other estate developers in the state to join the already-in-progress modern housing revolution.
He noted that there are minimum standards that must be upheld and said that the Awka Millennium City is a case study that his administration wants to mainstream as a model for modern housing to other estate developers.
“For our people who are spread out across the globe, if you don’t own a home here, you are missing out! The price goes up as you wait longer,” the Governor said.
Governor Soludo added; “for me, I will love to come here to build a home where I would like to live and enjoy.”
The Governor further revealed that the civil servants’ estate has already been approved and that there is 500 square meters of land available for middle class earners within the estate.
He also made mention of a mass housing scheme for low-income earners which is currently in place to address the shortage of high-quality, well-planned housing in the state.
Meanwhile, the Governor also visited the ongoing Golf Residency, Awka where he was shown the estate’s master plan.
The estate is coincidentally situated along the Awka-Ufuma Road, currently being constructed by the present administration.
The Commissioner for Land, Prof. Offornze Amaucheazi, applauded the Governor for the visit and stated that Anambra is already beginning to take the shape envisioned by Governor Soludo to become a prosperous and livable homeland.
