Arrangements have been concluded by the technical committee on low-cost housing scheme for the disposal of 2,000 housing units under the Adamawa State.
Managing Director of Adamawa Homes and Savings Limited, Mr. Giscard Stanley made this known to newsmen in Yola, that, the committee has been mandated to work out modalities for the equitable disposal of the houses.
He said, the 2,000 housing units have already been fully subscribed, adding that, the cost of construction and land has been subsidized by Governor Umaru Fintiri’s administration.
The MD observed that, the public is pressurizing for more houses against the backdrop of influx of people into the state from neighbouring states due to the insecurity challenges in the northeast.
According to him, the state has been facing challenges on housing, only rescued by the then administrations of Governor Boni Haruna and that of Murtala Nyako, who earlier embarked on housing estates for civil servants in the state.
Mr. Stanley commended the efforts of Governor Fintiri for “taking the bull by the horn” for the construction of the housing units, with 1,000 units at Malkohi area in the state capital, and 1,000 units spread across the 21 local government areas. The beneficiaries of this project are solely civil savants.
