Signed with the Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki
The agreement was sealed during a meeting between the Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, EDPA and MIXTA Africa’s team, at the Government House, on Tuesday 23 May, in Benin City.
Our Managing Director in Mixta Nigeria, Mr. Kola Ashiru-Balogun, said the first phase of the project will commence in June and will be completed within 12 months. Ashiru-Balogun said Mixta Africa has a record of over 10,000 housing units developed across Africa and has decided to partner with the State because of the Obaseki led- administration’s drive for developmental projects, adding that there are different payment plans being considered including a 24-month interest free payment plan.
The governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, said the ground-breaking ceremony for the housing project will be done by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo in June. “The plan is to provide accommodation for residents and indigenes at home and abroad. The project will provide opportunities for businesses in the State and create new jobs”, he explained, adding that EDPA has been strengthened by a new law.
