- ‘Affordable Housing Policy, Key to FCT Vision 20: 2020′

www.thisdailylive.com – November 8, 2012. The vision of Abuja to be among the top 20 cities in the world by the year 20:2020, will not be realised without a dynamic policy of decent affordable housing for the residents of FCT.

The assertion was made by the Minister of State, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mrs. Olajumoke Akinjide, at the recent 3rd Annual National Housing Seminar in Abuja.  According to her, “in the FCT, just like many other cities in Nigeria and the world, provision of housing has continued to pose enormous challenges due to the high increase in population”.

She added that, the increase in number of people that come into the FCT on daily basis has further put pressure not only on the housing facility, but also on other infrastructure and service delivery. Akinjide expressed optimism that the seminar with a theme, ‘Social Housing: the Business Opportunities Beyond Shelter’ would bring up ideas on how a workable social Housing Policy for FCT residents can be evolved.
