Architect Blames Housing Woes On Inconsistent Policies

An architect in Port Harcourt, Leonard Ladipo, has identified inconsistency in policy as the problem of development in the housing sector in Nigeria.
Ladipo who came up with this while speaking with The Tide shortly after a forum in Port Harcourt recently, noted that many past administrations that formulated various housing policies never accomplished them. According to him, the housing sector has been experiencing variations in government’s policies, but that unfortunately such were never accomplished.
He said “The housing sector has been known for contributing to the economic renaissance of many nations, but unfortunately in Nigeria, the story is different in all its ramifications.
The architect maintained that policy inconsistency is unhealthy for the growth of any country’s housing sector, and urged the Federal Government to adopt strategies that developed nations had used to optimally provide accommodation for their citizens.
“Promoting security of tenure is a prerequisite for sustainable improvement in housing and environmental conditions.
“The Federal Government and local authorities should design, adopt and implement pro-poor city development strategies and ensure sufficient availability of land for housing development”, he said. He also urged the Federal Government, as well as other State governments to pool resources together to overcome the challenges that are confronting housing sector.
