He also said FHA remains committed to deploying robust partnership and collaboration with other focused public and private institutions to drive change and growth in the sector.

“For us at FHA, the overall objective of the partnership is to commence the first phase of delivery of 300,000 housing units, which President Muhammadu Buhari promised Nigerians.

“The FHA is proud to be the first public agency to key into this social housing vision of Mr President to deliver the first 1,000 housing units of the mass housing project,” he said.

Ashafa added that the partnership will also generate thousands of jobs for professionals, labourers, artisans,  suppliers, food vendors, transporters and several others in the value chain.

On his part, Managing Director, Family Homes Funds, Mr Femi Adewole, said the partnership came about because FHA has more land than any other institution for housing in the country.

“I want to say that those homes are such that people can buy for N2 million for the 1 bedroom,  about N2.5 to 2.75 million for the 2 – bedroom and  N3.5 to N3.25 million for the 3- bedroom,” he said.

Speaking on what the fund is doing to ensure that the process is not hijacked by unscrupulous people, Adewole said his organisation decided to deal with the issue by executing the programme on the back of partnerships with an outfit like FHA.

“We also deal with cooperatives. So, rather than individuals, people are being encouraged to form or join housing cooperatives where they know themselves.

“Since they are through cooperatives, it makes it very difficult for somebody who is not a member of the cooperative to come and basically usurp the system.

“Hence, we have built control measures in place, to ensure that we have cooperatives of commercial tricycle operators, cooperatives of mechanics, cooperatives of butchers and of market women, who know themselves, organise themselves.

“It is through these cooperatives that the houses will be distributed,” he said.
