Minister Hails FHA Efforts on Affordable Housing for Citizens

Minister of State for Works and Housing, Mr Umar El-Yakub, has commended the Management of the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) on its efforts to provide affordable housing for citizens.

The minister gave the commendation during an inspection tour of the Zuba and Bwari Mass Housing Estates in Abuja on Tuesday.

The Zuba Mass Housing Project, which is over 90 per cent completion and soon to be commissioned, sits on 18 hectares of land and houses 748 units of three, two, one bedroom units and blocks of terrace duplexes.

The estate has 100 per cent completed standard infrastructure of roads drains, external water distribution network electricity reticulation, perimeter fence, water stations and other facilities for conducive habitation.

“This is a mixed development community. It is indeed a community because not only do you have the houses which are in one-bedroom two-bedroom a three-bedroom flats in condominium, as well as terrace houses of three bedrooms.

“They’re having an adequate facility. I was glad to see that even the 3-bedroom terrace houses were all ensuite.

”It’s not common to have houses that are all ensuite obviously provides more conveniences for the residents and as well as when they have visitors and guests.

“These are affordable housing. So for you to have such edifices as affordable is really worth commending the authority,” El-Yakub said.
