Introduction Nigeria is estimated to be populated by one hundred and fourty million (140,000,000) People. Out of this, it has been argued that Lagos state is populated by between thirteen million (13,000,000) and eighteen million (18,000,000) people who come from all over the world. This is so because Lagos is the commercial and financial hub of Nigeria, the most populous black nation on earth. In the light of the above fact, it has been quiet a Herculean task providing suitable, decent and affordable housing to this population which continues to grow on a daily basis as a result of the influx of people who have chosen to make Lagos the place they will eke out a living. Challenge There is a challenge to: • Urgently open up new terrains for housing development • Meet the housing needs of the people through the provision of suitable, decent and affordable housing • Encourage more people to enter into the development of housing for the populace. Attempts Attempts have been made by the Federal Government through the Federal housing Authority (FHA),the National Housing Fund(NHF),The Lagos state Government through The Lagos state Development and Property corporation, Private estate developers and many corporate entities at meeting the housing needs of the people. It is not a secret that the attempts have been no more than a scratch on the surface of the challenge. Outlook At the geometric rate at which the population of Lagos is growing, it is almost impossible to completely satisfy the housing needs of the populace. Property development companies like HFP Nig Ltd have facilitated housing schemes running into tens of thousands of units and they have sold out completely. These include: • Dolphin estates,Ikoyi,which costs over N100,000,000 per unit of 4 bedroom duplex today when buying from a third party • Victoria Garden city Ikota,where a plot of land sells for well over N50,000,000
