Pages: 40-58
Authors: Owolabi, Babatunde Oluwaseyi
This study assesses of government involvement in housing delivery. It focuses on two selected study housing estate Owode and Ajoda new town estates within Ibadan the Oyo State capital city. The survey carried out included personal interviews with some officers of the Oyo State Housing Corporation, to access their impact in housing delivery in the state.  Administrative and institutional issues such as housing finance, allocation of housing units and physical planning aspect. The summary obtained revealed that the household size ranging between 1 and 5, which connotes that some of the houses are over populated as most of the flats are either two or three bedrooms apartments. The houses are bought from the corporation which some of the respondents at Ajoda estate claim to be expensive as compared to that of Owode which was said to be cheap. Housing tenure at both estates is strictly owner-occupier basis but as the case may be some are rental tenure, this rental tenure is a product of individuals who could not live on the estate and thus lease/rent to willing individuals. The estates are not fully provided with utilities/facilities, the available ones are in bad states. Each household adopt their various means of disposing refuse, there is no general open dump or waste collection authority to service the estates, however the case may be, the estates are in clean and hygienic state. The study therefore recommends financing low-cost housing, reduction of public houses price, public private partnership and site and services scheme.
