He said that N1.4 billion was generated from site services programmes, while over N1billion came from plot allocation and layout fees premium and N290 million was realised from sale of buildings.
“Our revenue also came in from contractors registration fees, deed registration fees, survey /planning /building fees, change of ownership fees, earnings from sundry income and others,” he said.
He said that the corporation received N2.3 billion for capital projects this year, while N1.5billion was spent on construction and provision of housing.
Odusolu said that OPIC had been able to initiate and complete many housing prototypes in its various estates.
He said that corporation had established partnerships to ensure that it met its revenue targets.
The chief executive promised that the corporation would continue to provide affordable housing units to the people of the state.
