Housing Scheme: Fg Pledges Equal Opportunities For All Nigerians

The federal government has pledged that the housing units to be built under the Federal Housing Scheme (FHS), will be allocated to all Nigerians, irrespective of their states’ of origin and economic status in society.
Minister Of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola made the pledge yesterday in Maiduguri while speaking to newsmen shortly after inspecting some federal projects in Borno state.
He said qualified residents in every state will be given equal opportunities to own a decent house, regardless of their tribe or state of origin.

“The ultimate beneficiaries of these houses under the Federal Housing Scheme; will be the residents of the states, where the houses are being built to meet the national housing needs of all people residing in the 36 states of the federation.

“I prefer to use the word residents to indicate people who live or work in the states where the houses are built rather than those who are indigenous to the state.
“Houses built in Bauchi, for example, were for the residents of Bauchi in Bauchi state.That is the workers in Bauchi, both from public and private sector, who qualified based on whatever premises used to decide allocation of the houses,” he said.
Fashola explained that the objective of the scheme was to deliver affordable houses to workers based on the National Housing Policy.
He noted that there is a national housing policy in place aimed at providing affordable housing but there has been no programme in place to deliver the houses.
