Nigeria: Firm Restates Commitment to Affordable Housing

The Managing Director of Resort Savings and Loans, Mr. Abimbola Olayinka, has restated the commitment of the bank to the provision of affordable housing to Nigerians, saying that it takes priority over many other things in its firm's agenda.

Olayinka, who stated this in Lagos while speaking on the giant steps taken by the bank so far on its housing projects across the country, noted that the impact of the bank has spread to many parts of Nigeria.

"We are proud to be associated with the housing needs of Nigeria. For instance, the Pearl Garden Estate at Sangotedo in Lekki area of Lagos is within the Lekki Trade Zone recently declared open by the state government. The estate stands to benefit from some of the infrastructural developments earmarked for the free trade zone, which include construction of a coastal road and the improved ferry system. The estate is also ten minutes drive from the Lagos Business School, which is also known as Pan African University," he said.
