FG plans 100 social homes for each of the 774 nation’s LGAs

The Federal Government is poised to commence construction of 100 social homes in each of the nation’s 774 local government areas, under its National Social Housing Programme, NSHP. The scheme is aimed at providing affordable and decent accommodation to the low-income and underprivileged citizens.

The Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Ahmed Dangiwa made the announcement while receiving in his office in Abuja, officials of the National Association of Directors of Local Government Departments of Works, Housing, Transport, and Environment in Nigeria.

The Minister also announced plans by his ministry to collaborate with relevant local government departments under the federal government’s programme of upgrading slums and renew urban areas in selected states across the country.

The program will involve providing infrastructure like roads, water, sanitation, and other amenities to communities that are not fit for human habitation by current standards.

He stressed that the federal government is committed to transforming communities into decent and livable places for people to live in: “We are upgrading communities deemed not fit for human habitation by all standards and transforming them into decent, liveable communities by providing infrastructure like roads, water, sanitation, and other amenities.”
