As part of efforts to encourage increased private sector participation in addressing Nigeria’s housing deficit, the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, has performed the ground-breaking ceremony for a 480-housing unit project in the Kukwaba area of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
According to the minister, housing projects must incorporate eco-friendly designs, embrace technological advancements, and cater to the diverse needs of society, including low- and medium-income earners.
“In this regard, I will request that the Management of City Gate Homes earmark a certain percentage of the 480 homes as affordable housing with price tags that average Nigerians can afford to buy.
“As the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, I am an advocate of affordable housing with the focus on the average Nigerian workers, who are indeed, the majority,” he appealed.
