Speaking at the corporation’s budget presentation before the state’s House of Assembly Committee on Finance and Appropriation, Akunwunmi predicted a massive turnaround in housing development, this year.

“It is noteworthy to say that the corporation is confident of making houses available to the residents of the state as the proposed budget estimates for 2016 are all encompassing to make this a reality."
