The Federal Government says it will build affordable houses for low and middle-income earners across the country.
Minister of State, Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu, stated these when he visited the Federal Government Housing Estate, Zuba, Abuja, on Saturday to inspect the level of work done on the project.
Abubakar Aliyu explained that the government target was to cut the 20 million housing deficit in the country by 2033.
He said to do that, the government would build one million housing units annually.
“By the time we are able to provide the enabling environment and remove all these problems and create a level playing ground for investors to come in I think we will be able to reach our target at 2033 where we will close the gap of over 20 million (housing) deficit, he said
According to Abubakar Aliyu, the government would ensure the speedy completion of the project.
He noted that the project was already at 75 per cent and would be delivered to Nigerians soon.
The minister added that the government would extend the housing project to other states.
