The Minister of State for Works and Housing, Mu’azu Sambo on Monday said the Federal Government was set to provide more adequate and affordable housing for about 2, 000 families in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
He made this disclosure during an inspection of the Affordable Housing and Management Development Initiative.
“It is a fundamental priority of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to provide decent and affordable houses for the teeming masses of Nigerians especially against the backdrop of rural-urban migration, Sambo said.
“It may interest you to know that out of the 200 million Nigerians we have today, it is estimated that about half of that figure is living in the urban centres.
“It is the responsibility of any government, most especially the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration to make sure that affordable houses are provided for them”, he added.
