The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) through its Satellite Towns Development Department is set to roll out 30000 housing units for the officials of FCTA/FCDA in Karshi area of the territory.
“FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, who stated this at the assessment tour of the project in Karshi, promised that the developers are committed to the realisation of the project promptly.
“The minister noted that after the project, the staff of the FCT Administration would be more committed to duty, stressing that they would also have a sense of ownership of the houses.”
“She said in a statement yesterday by her Special Assistant Media, Austine Elemue:
“First and foremost the Karshi tour is to assess the affordable housing project designed for the staff of the FCTA/FCDA. The FCT Administration is committed to affordable housing as mandated by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to ensure that there is a provision for affordable housing for indigenous people and residents of the Federal Capital Territory across the six area councils.
“”So, it happens we have a site in Karshi and we came to inspect it and to look at some possible encroachment. Practically, we are ready to tradeoff and do the needful. We have assessed the whole place to ensure that all the infrastructures are already in place and to ensure that the houses are truly affordable and structures are qualitative.
“”We came out today with our development partners, the Family Homes. We have over 30000 staff waiting already, and we are set to proceed. As for the takeoff, it is as soon as now, but the COVID-19 pandemic which is not peculiar to us but a global pandemic slow down the pace of development.
