Yobe to Build 300 Housing Units

The Yobe State government is to construct additional 300 housing units at N1.6 billion. The state's Commissioner for Information and Home Affairs Goni Fika, who said this yesterday in Damaturu, hinted that the houses would complement about 1, 000 units so far built by the Gaidam administration and would be sold to civil servants and other citizens of the state on owner-occupier basis at 65 percent discount. The commissioner also said that the government approved N353 million for provision of additional infrastructure including lecture theatres and staff housing at the state-owned university.
