President Bola Tinubu has assured decent and affordable house for Nigerians.
The president made this known during the groundbreaking of the 3,112 housing-unit Renewed Hope City in Karsana, Abuja.
The project is part of 20,000 housing units to be delivered in the Federal Capital Territory under a Public Private Partnership arrangement being implemented by the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and it represents the first practical expression of the administration’s desire to implement a New City Development Plan under the Renewed Hope Agenda.
Speaking at the occasion, the president said under this plan, integrated living communities that will redefine the essence of residential living for Nigerians nationwide will be built, emphasizing that his vision is to build dynamic, integrated and self-sustaining communities, equipped with amenities to enhance the quality of living for residents, according to ThisDay.
According to him, “This includes well-connected access and internal roads, provision of reliable and uninterrupted electricity, healthcare facilities to offer accessible and quality medical services and educational institutions to provide learning environments that nurture knowledge and skills.
“Our goal is to increase the sense of togetherness, improve health and productivity of our citizens and reduce pressure on city centres. On this note, I am today directing the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and the Minister of Works to provide access roads to all Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Projects to increase accessibility and livability starting with this site in Karsana.
“This is because my administration believes that every Nigerian deserves to have access to shelter that is affordable and adequate.”
