The Family Homes Funds, in partnership with PriceWaterHouse Coopers, an international recruitment firm, has launched a campaign to deliver affordable housing programme as a key aspect of the Government’s Social Intervention Programme.
The released statement by the promoters of the programme reads: “Towards this goal, the Funds has recently completed the construction of 400 homes with an average cost of N3.5m in Grand Luvu, Nasarawa State, while over 4,000 homes under construction in five states namely: Ogun, Nasarawa, Kano, Delta and Kaduna are ongoing.
“A further 30,000 homes are at advanced stages of negotiation with development partners and will commence by November 2018. As the new company builds capacity through the ongoing recruitment campaign, it will achieve a programme of 80,000 homes by December 2019.”
It added: “Creation of new jobs is a critical element of the Funds’ programme. Ongoing investments are already making a real difference with over 13,000 jobs created and about 360,000 to be created from current development pipeline. The Grand Luvu project in Nasarawa State has created about 8,000 jobs.
“Kabiru Usman, 26, has been unemployed since graduation from Nasarawa State University. He was employed and obtained training on the Funds’ Grand Luvu project,” the statement said
