Adamawa state Controller of Housing, Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Aminu Sambo, has disclosed that the National Housing Programme (NHP) in the state has reached 90 per cent completion level.
Sambo also noted that a total of 100 housing units have been built in the state by the ministry.
He told journalists that the houses comprised of three, two and one bedroom apartments, adding that they were situated close to the city gate on the Yola-Numan Federal Highway.
The controller said the construction was a direct labour project embarked on by the ministry in 2017.
“The federal government is currently building 100 housing units in Yola, the Adamawa state capital. The development is part of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s desire to provide shelter to Nigerians at affordable rate,’’ he said.
Sambo said the second phase of another 100 units would be on course as soon as the first phase was completed.
He said the first phase of the housing units would be leased out to interested Nigerians at subsidised rates when completed.
