The Real Estate Development Association of Nigeria (REDAN) in collaboration with Shelter Afrique is set to provide 77,400 affordable housing units for Nigerians across the country.
President of REDAN, Dr. Aliyu Wammako, who disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, said this was part of the association’s Rural Urban Housing Initiative (RUHI 774).
Wammako explained that, under the arrangement, they would provide 100 houses in each of the 774 local government areas.
He added: “The programme are designed to enhance housing delivery in the country and it is for the benefit of all Nigerians.”
According to him, only 20,000 Nigerians, mostly teachers, LGA workers and personnel from the paramilitary, who have so far applied for a house under the RUHI774 project, were captured in the data base.
“Nigeria is the highest investor in Shelter Afrique, and the company recently declared $1.3 billion profit.
“But with less or no visible commensurate developmental project of the company in the country.
“Our association, therefore, decided to partner with the company, in order to bring home the desired benefits.”
