The Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Ahmed Dangiwa, has promised the Real Estate Developer’s Association of Nigeria to lead a crusade to ensure that the body gets support from Shelter Afrique.

Dangiwa made the promise when he received the executives of REDAN led by the President/CEO, Aliyu Wamakko, in his office on Thursday in Abuja.

He said, “We are the second largest investors of Shelter Afrique but despite all that Nigerians have not benefited much from them. I think their engagement with REDAN has opened an avenue for us to benefit from them.

“As a minister, I will lead that crusade to ensure that you get the necessary support from Shelter Afrique. I have to commend REDAN for their wonderful performance in this crusade for the housing deficit in the country, and also for increasing the stock of houses within the country.”

Earlier, the President/CEO of REDAN, Aliyu Wamakko, commended the minister on his well-deserved appointment as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
