Nigeria's Housing Initiatives Neither Consistent Nor Measurable

By Bennett Oghifo

Over the years, Nigeria has embarked on a series of housing initiatives but not one of them has been pursued with consistency or any measurable sustainability, Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fahola told a meeting called by Shelter Afrique.

The Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola said he is convinced that Nigeria has over the years embarked on unsustainable efforts in housing provision that "must change, and give way to a sustainable and well thought out initiative."

Fashola stated this at the 35th AGM of Shelter Afrique and Housing Symposium, which held in Abuja, recently.
