Responding, Fika lamented the dilapidating conditions of the houses sold under the Federal Government’s Monetization Policy, which according to her necessitated the board’s partnership with the Federal Mortgage Bank (FMBN) to enable such owners’ access renovation loans.

She called for synergy between the board and the FCDA to move forward, especially in the area of the provision of land.
