Fashola: FG Is Constructing Low-Cost Houses In 34 States

IgbereTV reports that the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola said that the Federal Government is currently constructing affordable homes in 34 states of the federation.

The Minister revealed this in Abuja on Thursday. He also announced that at least one federal road project was being constructed in each of the 36 states of Nigeria. He said that many of the roads had been completed already while plans are currently made to build others.

He said, β€œWe are delivering on our agenda for housing provision by aggressively and sustainably pursuing the model National Housing Programme, which will turn out acceptable and affordable houses for Nigerians, and with a lot of associated economic opportunities. Construction is ongoing in 34 states, most of which are largely completed, and will soon be offered for sale to the public, while also simultaneously planning the second phase in those states that have provided us with land.”

Speaking through the Minister of State for Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu, Fashola said that in the works sector, the Federal Government had also started rehabilitating roads across the country.

He said, β€œThe effective, efficient and timely movement of people, goods and delivery of services are imperative for socio-economic growth and sustainable development. I am pleased to report in this regard that there is at least one federal road under construction in each of the 36 states and the FCT.”

β€œWhile many have been completed, others are still under construction and new ones being planned. We are also repairing, building and rehabilitating many other roads under our Federal Road Maintenance Agency.”

He said that a lot of potentials abound in urban settlements and that it was only proper planning that can make those potentials to materialise.
