The commissioner, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Engr. Abiola Kosegbe, said the fast degrading condition of  Federal Government Estates in Lagos State, especially Festac Town and Gowon Estate, Ipaja necessitated the constitution of a committee to see to the restoration of the Estates.
