The bank, therefore, stressed that it would continue to count on the support and cooperation of the state government to enable it provide to decent and affordable housing for all.

Gbeleyi told Ugwuanyi that FMBN would continue to count on the state’s support, noting that the bank is committed to do more. He explained that the FMBN-I-Connect Housing Estate is a 254 units housing project known as Winners Estate, located at Legacy Layout, behind New GRA, Trans-Ekulu, Enugu, and was developed under the Cooperative Housing Development Loan (CHDL) window of FMBN.
The housing project, according to Gbeleyi, was financed by FMBN and developed by I-Connect Investment Limited. He noted it has been completed and already being occupied to the delight of homeowners.
The inauguration was performed by the governor, who was represented by his deputy, Cecilia Ezeilo, and supervised by the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola and the Minister of State, Works and Housing, Umar Ibrahim El-Yakub.
Welcoming the delegation, Ugwuanyi reiterated the state government’s commitment to the success of FMBN in actualising its mandate. He assured the leadership of the bank that the incoming administration of Dr. Peter Mbah will continue to give the bank the support and cooperation it needs to thrive in the state.
He also urged them to give Mbah and his administration maximum support and cooperation, expressing optimism that the incoming governor would do better.
