A Lagos-based property developer and promoter of lifestyle homes, Haven Homes Limited has opened a new residential estate in Lekki, equipped with ultra-modern facilities.
It is an exquisite four-bedroom home set on three levels in the Richmond Gate Estate located off Meadow Hall Way in a prestige environ of Ikate-Eleguushi in the Lekki corridor.
The event was graced by the Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, Mr. Bosun Jeje, Timi Dakolo and several other distinguished guests. Haven Homes Managing Director, Mr. Tayo Sonuga hosted the event.
With its alluring architecture hoisted on the crest of exotic lifestyle brand, Haven Homes Limited, according to its promoter is clearly redefining luxury living in the country. Constructed to conform to modern architecture, the master bedroom has a double height ceilings and ample recreational ground.
Sonuga seized the opportunity offered by the occasion to lament the exorbitant price and scarcity of cement in the country, “The government should do something drastic and urgent about the cement market. In December 2013, a bag of cement sold for N1, 650 but now it is selling for N2, 200 per bag and yet we cannot even find it readily available to buy, this is clearly not acceptable.
“If no positive steps are to be taken towards meeting the housing needs of Nigerians estimated at about 18million units, the easy availability and affordability of a commodity as important as cement cannot be over emphasized.”
Aware of the cliché that has become a familiar pattern with several governments over the years, Sonuga asserted further, “The government at the federal and state levels should be sincere and determined in their resolve to address the housing problems of Nigerians, this is how they can show it by making cement not only cheap and affordable but also easily available.
Sonuga also wanted the government to look into the current monopoly established in the cement market in the country, “At the moment, only Dangote Cement and Lafarge Cement are consistently producing cement in the entire country. For a population of 160 million, it is not good enough; that sort of monopoly would make the product to be too expensive. Cement is too important to be left to the vagaries of private or public monopoly”.
