Adeleke, who engaged tenants at the complex, expressed shock at the poor state of the housing complex despite records of payments of service charges by the residents.

I cannot believe what I saw here. This is simply unacceptable. I was here when this complex served as a Governor’s Lodge. I am shocked at what it has become even with a specialised agency mandated to manage the place.

“The committee I set up had briefed me on the poor state of most of the properties. The Osun house project in Abuja was totally abandoned and I had to hold a special meeting with the contractor on how to complete the project.”
