Veteran Actress, Iya Awero, gets new house from Sanwo-Olu


Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has presented a three-bedroom flat to Nollywood veteran actress, Lanre Hasan, popularly known as Iya Awero.

This gesture is in response to the actress’s urgent need of a house.

Governor Sanwo-Olu presented her with the key to the new apartment at the commissioning of the 360 units of apartments under the Lagos Home Ownership Mortgage Scheme, completed in Igbogbo area of Ikorodu.

The housing project was formally inaugurated on Wednesday at an event attended by all Government functionaries and traditional rulers in Ikorodu division.

The actress expressed profound gratitude to the governor for his generous act after she was presented the key of the property.

Sanwo-Olu named the scheme after former Deputy Governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) apex leader in Ikorodu, Abiodun Ogunleye.

The scheme, which is sited on 6.24 hectares of land, was conceived in 2012 under the ex-Governor Babatunde Fashola’s administration. It has 10 blocks each of 120 units of one-bedroom flat, 120 units of two-bedroom flat and 120 units of three-bedrooms apartments.

Sanwo-Olu said the decision to complete the Igbogbo housing scheme was in tune with his pledge at the commissioning of Lateef Jakande Estate, Igando in 2019, where he reiterated his commitment to deliver all housing projects inherited by his administration.
