Ogun State Property and Investment Corperation (OPIC) is set to commence the development of two new estates at Siun Axis and Ijebu Ode- Epe axis of the State as part of its renewed efforts towards providing affordable housing for the public in a serene and secured environment in the next fiscal year.

The Special Adviser/ Managing Director of the OPIC, Arch.
