FG To Start Sales Of New Houses Soon – Fashola

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, on Wednesday said that the ministry would soon commence the sale of housing units built under the National Housing Programme nationwide.

He said that this would be done through an online subscription to allow for transparency and reduce human interference to the barest in the allocation process.

Mr Fashola said this at a one-day stakeholders engagement forum organised by the Lagos State Real Estate Transactions Department with the theme: “Lagos Real Estate: Achieving 21st Century Compliance”

Represented by Sarah Alawode, Controller, Federal Ministry of Housing, Mr Fashola said that housing, apart from being one of the major needs of a man, holds great potential for the economic well being of Lagos State and Nigeria at large.

“It therefore behoves on us all to ensure that the art and practice of housing delivery in all ramifications are advanced for the benefit of the country and teeming population seeking shelter on a daily basis,” he said.

According to him, more states need to play a more active role to ensure a better experience for citizens in the area of land and security of land transaction, thereby attracting investment.
