FG will provide affordable houses for Nigerians — Adeosun

Kemi Adeosun





The  Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, has said the Federal Government is committed to providing affordable houses for Nigerians.

She stated this when she met with representatives from international finance institutions at the World Bank Spring meetings holding in the United States to take forward discussions on Nigeria’s agenda to deliver affordable housing.



A statement on Saturday  from her Media Adviser, Mr Festus Akanbi, quoted the minister to have said that housing delivery was one of the main economic agenda of the Federal Government as it was key to stimulating economic activities.

She said, “Delivering affordable housing is critical to the delivery of our reform agenda and is one of the key pillars for implementation, which we have been discussing in Washington this week.

“Nigeria has an estimated housing deficit of 17 million units, and with an estimated increase of 900,000 annually. Some of the reasons for this are clear.

“Interest rates are high for both developers and home buyers, and the tenure of debt remains too short.

“As a result, we have to find a way to accelerate the provision of affordable homes. That is why we have established the Family Homes Fund.”

She added,  “We have requested N100bn in the 2017 budget and for the subsequent three years as part of the Medium Term Expenditure Framework;  this is seed funding from the government.

“But this is not solely a public sector scheme, it will be a partnership with the private sector and we are looking to mobilise additional resources from domestic and external sources.”

The minister said the fund would enable government to deliver discounted mortgages for homeowners, while also enabling access to attractive funding mechanisms for developers.


“We are piloting in six states and the results of those pilots will guide long-term programme implementation,” she added.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
