The Kebbi State Government said it plans to construct 5,000 homes and allocate them for free to junior civil servants and less privileged in the four emirates of the state.
The General Manager, State Housing Corporation, Mohammed Abdullahi stated this at the Abuja International Housing Show held at the International Conference Centre. Abdullahi also added that plans are underway to build 650 social housing units in different locations.
He explained that land is not a challenge in Kebbi State because there are massive hectares of land, adding, “Family Homes Funds is currently constructing 10,000 houses for the indigenes as dividend of democracy.
“Many developers are thronging the state as a result of the land, which is now available for them to build houses. I am here to see the ground breaking achievements of other states and organisations, and to exchange ideas. Discussions are on to proffer practical solutions on how to increase the stock of housing in Kebbi state”, he concluded.
