A Mass Housing Estate On the Brink in Abuja

Jessica Odemwingie writes on the unending crisis enveloping one of the largest mass housing estates in Abuja and why the FCT authorities need to intervene urgently
Winning Clause Estate recently renamed City of David Estate, which is situated at Plot 67 Kafe District, new Gwarinpa, Abuja, is one of largest mass housing estates in Abuja. With over 350 duplexes already developed in the estate and over seven hectares of land yet to be established, the stress-free accessibility of the estate makes it eye-catching to many house subscribers.
From the Life Camp Roundabout, it is about a 15-minute drive to the estate; and if you are accessing it from the Main Gate of Gwarinpa along Kubwa Expressway, it's about 10 minutes drive at 50 kilometres per hour.
Planned to be a mass housing estate, a group of homes and other buildings, built together as a single development by a single contractor with uniform appearance, the City of David Estate would ordinarily have been the most sought after but for the unending controversy enveloping it, which most residents claimed was created by a "disputable estate developer", Winning Clause Limited.
