Agency Tackles Housing Deficit, Plans 7000 Units

As part of efforts at addressing Nigeria’s housing deficit estimated at 28 million units, the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) says it has started work on a project that will deliver 7,000 housing units.

The Managing director at FHA, Gbenga Ashafa who made this known, said the 7,000 units were towards the fulfillment of President Bola Tinubu’s vision for affordable housing in Nigeria.

He recalled that President Tinubu, on the assumption of duty, frowned at the cash purchase of houses, citing it as an enabler of fraud and stressing that the estate would contribute approximately 7,000 distinct residential units to Nigerians.

According to him, FHA would commence with an initial 1,200 units, through a public-private partnership with Nuga Best Regis International, disclosing that the estate would be serviced with standard infrastructure that characterised FHA development.

The chairman, NUGA Best International, Hillary Chukwuma noted that the estate which sits on about 200 hectares of land is designed with plans for schools, hospitals, recreation centres, markets, shopping malls, filling stations, and police stations amongst others.
