The Federal Government has urged states across the nation to allocate land for the construction of homes aimed at supporting vulnerable Nigerians.
Mahmuda Mamman, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, highlighted during the 12th Meeting of the National Council on Housing and Urban Development in Kaduna that the ministry’s National Housing Scheme Programme intends to aid the country’s vulnerable populace by providing housing solutions, thereby narrowing the housing gap.
He emphasized the ministry’s plan to implement a social housing scheme, aiming to offer suitable and affordable housing options to address the housing needs of Nigerians. Mamman mentioned that discussions at the Kaduna meeting would explore ways for state governments to participate in the housing initiative. Additionally, he stated that the ministry has contacted states, requesting available land for the project.
“We have written letters to the various state governments asking them to give us unencumbered lands so that we can be able to build these affordable houses for all Nigerians because it is a matter of right and not a privilege; that’s why the administration is doing things differently.
“An ongoing survey conducted by the National Population Commission would ascertain the accurate figure of the housing deficit in the nation, and the figures would be made known upon completion of the survey,” he said.
