The Commissioner assured that the present administration would continue to partner and key into the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda of President Bola Tinubu, at ensuring that affordable housing was provided for the people, to ameliorate hardship being experienced in the country.

Earlier, the Head of the delegation, TPL.
