President Muhammadu Buhari announced yesterday that his administration is using the National Housing Programme to address the country’s housing crisis.
According to the President, the program, which began in 2016 to alleviate the nation’s housing need, is finally coming to fruition with the construction and inauguration of housing developments around the federation.
“Though we desire to meet every one of those Nigerians in person, if possible, our economic policies and investment in infrastructure, such as this National Housing Programme and others, will reach and positively impact a lot of them,” Buhari, who was represented by Minister of Interior, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, said at the official commissioning of the National Housing Programme, Phase 1, Abere, Osogbo, in Osun State.
“Beyond job creation, our ambition and dedication to improving the human condition, as well as our message of change, have another dimension. It caters to those who have long desired to possess their own home. With this endeavor, their desire has come true.
“However, our message of change and improvement of the human situation in these housing projects is more than that. They make possible what previously appeared to be impossible. It is an occasion to remember our heroes, the gallant Super Eagles, to whom our country promised to provide housing in exchange for their victory in the 1994 African Cup of Nations, a promise that has yet to be fulfilled.

“We have offered all these housing units to members of the general public in a non-discriminatory way by opening the National Housing Portal to ensure that those interested are not inhibited by any artificial obstacles and allocations will be made based on those who apply and pay on a first-come, first-served basis,” said the Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Raji Fashola, who was represented by the Director, Urban and Regional Development, Olasunkanmi Dunmoye.
