A communication expert has called out Real estate companies in Nigeria who are fond of misleading unsuspecting members of the public to sell them lands and other properties in thick forests.
The lady, Oluwatoyin Adeyemi taking to her Facebook page berated the so called Real Estate companies and their agents who are in the habit of lying to Nigerians that their Estate are located close to popular landmarks such as Tertiary institutions.
Adeyemi added that most of these Estates are located inside bushes with just a fence and gate
She called on the government to be more serious in providing decent low cost housing for average income earners.
Several other Nigerians corroborated her claims adding that some of these Estates end up being abandoned.
Below is her post:
Some Real Estate companies will not make heaven🤣🤣
Somebody will come on radio and be shouting that this place is Ajibode Extension or call it back of IITA.
Awon oni estate ‘isonu’😂😂
This place that is deep inside inside the bush.
Although I have been hearing about this place on radio, I discovered the location yesterday. I calculated the drive-time, it is approximately 30 minutes from Ajibode maternity. A bikeman will take nothing less than #500 from Ajibode to the place.
If the purpose you got land in this kind of place is ‘land banking’, you are good, but if it is for residential purpose, just make sure you have a reliable vehicle or bike at least and good security arrangement. Well, God is our sure security in Nigeria😆😆
What about medical emergencies?
Well my question today is: Why should average income earners like civil servants have to go inside the bush like this to access decent housing? What happened to the federal mortgage system? A lot of civil servant can attest to the fact that the allocation of available houses is done in such a way that it is not within the reach of an average worker.
I really hope that government will become more serious about providing decent low cost housing for average income earners or better still, work with these real estate companies to provide good access roads, heath facilities and police stations and other basic life amenities for their developing sites.
I almost cried yesterday seeing what people had to go through to access where they live. They say it is worse during rainy seasons.
Meanwhile many of us don’t have access to the right information, that’s why we think we cannot afford certain things yet. The land we went to check around, not within this estate in the picture for instance is being sold at almost the same price as one within the main community which is just around five minutes drive to Ajibode or even less if the road is good.
