Speaking during an inspection of the project site by the Senate Committee on Housing, Managing Director, Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Prof. Mohammed Al-Amin said about N6.2 billion has so far been spent on the project. He stressed that additional N3.7billion would be injected to complete the estate.
Al-Amin noted that FHA is expecting the release of fund and will move to Bwari to start another larger project as soon as it is released.
The FHA boss explained that the houses are designed for low-income earners both in the public, private sector and self employed once they meet up with the criteria.
According to him, FHA has printed application forms and once the project reaches 80per cent completion, the forms will be available at the headquarters and zonal offices for interested Nigerians to apply. “We will continue to deliver affordable housing for Nigerians”.
In his remarks, Chairman Senate Committee on Housing, Senator Gemade expressed satisfaction with the quality and pace of work on the site.
