The Federal Government (FG) has warned applicants for the National Housing Programme against the use of invalid documents.

It advised applicants to ensure strict compliance with the requirements by uploading complete and only valid documents on the portal.

However, it assured that all prospective applicants who complied with all the registration requirements will have a hitch-free subscription and successful applicants for the homes will be notified via the e-mail addresses they supplied.

Alternatively, it said applicants can log in to their profile to check the status of their application.
