FG unveils ambitious plan: 80,000 houses in 8 years to tackle Nigeria's housing deficit

In a bold move to address Nigeria’s housing deficit, the Federal Government has pledged to deliver 80,000 houses over the next eight years, according to Mahmuda Mamman, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.


Speaking during the 12th meeting of the National Council on Lands, Housing, and Urban Development in Kaduna, Mamman highlighted the commitment of President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda to implement innovative approaches in governance. He emphasized that the approved memorandum, especially focusing on the social housing scheme, is designed to provide affordable housing options for vulnerable individuals in the country.


“This policy ensures that vulnerable persons in the country can afford to have a roof over their head, thereby bridging the gap in the housing sector,” Mamman stated, emphasizing that the government aims to cater to all Nigerians, regardless of their socioeconomic class.


The Permanent Secretary urged patience from the public, assuring that the government is dedicated to implementing this transformative initiative with a commitment to effective delivery. The meeting in Kaduna serves as a platform for states to collaborate on providing suitable land for the ambitious housing project.
