FG, Shelter Afrique in talks to abridge gap


By Chris Ochayi

Disturbed by the huge housing deficit confronting the country, the federal government at the weekend commenced talks with Shelter Afrique, with a view to abridging this gap.

The Minister of State for Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu, at a meeting with Mr. Andrew Chimphondah, the Managing Director of Shelter Afrique, who paid him a visit in Abuja, expressed concerns over the shortfall in housing provision in Nigeria.

The Minister therefore, urged Shelter-Afrique to increase loans to interested mortgage institutions in Nigeria in order to meet the need for the provision of more houses to Nigeria’s teeming population, pointing out that he was optimistic that Nigeria would meet up with its outstanding financial obligations to Shelter-Afrique in order to deliver innovative and sustainable housing in Africa.
