The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. 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.
Represented by Mrs. Sarah Alawode, Controller, Federal Ministry of Housing, 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, behooves 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.
He expressed optimism that the support of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council in driving the Ease of Doing Business (EODB) would, among other things, enhance the confidence of prospective land buyers in the system.
