With the task to implement the Nigeria government’s National Social Housing Programme (NSHP), Family Homes Funds has struck partnership with Africa’s largest cement producers, Dangote Cement to deliver 300,000 affordable houses in the Federal Capital Territory and 36 states of the country.
Following a series of management meetings between both parties, Dangote Cement has now committed to supplying cement across Family Homes Funds sites at heavily discounted prices.
Given that the objective of the NSHP is to deliver exceptionally affordable homes for Nigerians on low income, this development guarantees a further reduction in the cost of construction of the 300,000 houses.
The National Social Housing Programme (NSHP) which is Nigeria government’s response to the health and economic challenges of Coronavirus is going to provide 300,000 homes and 1,800,000 jobs across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria.
As at now, over 1,250 hectares of land has been committed for the NSHP in the FCT, Kwara, Plateau, Nasarawa, Ebonyi, Enugu, Anambra, Abia, Delta, Ogun, Osun, Ekiti, Jigawa, Kebbi, Sokoto, Kaduna, Katsina, Yobe, Borno, Bauchi. Construction work will start in up to 12 sites in January.
In order to ease the process, a portal www.nshp.gov.ng has been created to enable citizens’ expression of interest in the programme and to provide stakeholders access to information and opportunities.
