Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development is to build 250 housing units in Osun State, the Minister, Mr. Ahmed Dangiwa, has said.

He spoke yesterday in Osogbo during the groundbreaking ceremony of the project.

Dangiwa said the housing project was under the ‘Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Programme’ of the ministry.

He said the estate would comprise 50 units of one bedroom semi-detached bungalows, 150 units of two bedroom semi-detached bungalows and 50 units of three bedroom semi-detached bungalows.

Dangiwa added that the housing units were projected to be completed in the next three months

He said the housing programme was launched in February by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, with the inauguration of 3,112 housing units in Karsana, Abuja.
“Under phase one of this programme, we plan to deliver 50,000 housing units across Nigeria.

“This will include seven ‘Renewed Hope Cities’ that will have between 500 and 1,000 housing units per site in each of the six geopolitical zones and the FCT.

“The Renewed Hope Estates will have 250 units per site in the remaining 30 states,” he said.

Dangiwa said the housing project was also aimed at unlocking the massive potential of housing development, creating jobs, uplifting lives, and to boost economic development, in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Tinubu.

He said the project is also to stimulate inclusive growth, lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty and build a one trillion dollar economy.”
