FG Begins Housing Construction in Four States

The Federal Government through the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development has announced plans to commence a nationwide official groundbreaking for phase 1 of the Renewed Hope Cities and Estates project, beginning with 1,250 housing units in four states in northern Nigeria.

It said the groundbreaking event is scheduled to begin on May 22 in Katsina State and conclude on May 25 in Gombe State.

The Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Ahmed Dangiwa, in a statement on Sunday said the completion of the contracting process and the mobilisation of reputable developers marked the commencement of this significant development.

This exercise follows the programme’s official launch by His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, with a 3,112-housing unit project in Karsana, Abuja, in February 2024. A statement signed by the Minister’s Special Assistant on Media, Mark Chieshe, emphasised the commitment of the current administration to turning the country into a huge construction site and unlocking the potential of the housing sector to create jobs, catalyse economic growth and contribute to the economy. The statement read in part, “The minister will officially flag off construction activities at the project sites as follows: 250 housing units at Renewed Hope Estate in Katsina on Wednesday, May 22, 2024.”
