He said the state government was committed towards the realization of the housing partnership, adding that the project was viable, worthy of embracing and capable of reducing corruption among civil servants when their housing needs had been sorted.

"Our civil servants are in dire need of adequate and comfortable shelter which my administration is very much committed to realize," he said.

The Governor added that the gesture when realized by the government would increase workers productivity and reduce the housing challenge in the state.
