The Executive Director of Legal, Human Resource and Compliance at Ecobank Ghana, Morgan F.

“As the biggest bank in the country today, Ecobank deems it a privilege to join forces with the government and other stakeholders in the quest to provide decent accommodation for all and to assist in reducing the housing deficit”, he said.

Ghana’s population is estimated to reach 32.2 million by 2020 and with about 57 percent living in urban communities, the current housing deficit which is 1.7 million units is expected to rise to 2 million units by 2018.

Experts are therefore of the view that the country would require about 200,000 housing units every year for the next 10 years to be able to bridge the gap. A recent online survey by Jumia Homes Ghana and Hacking Adulthood has revealed that 91 percent of Ghanaians are not property owners and therefore, either live in rented accommodation or with their extended families.
