FISH: FG returns to drawing board over high prices by developers

The Federal Government says is returning to the drawing board to address some of the challenges that had been bedeviling the implementation of the Federal Integrated Staff Housing Scheme (FISH).

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

She said that the Government had realised that the cost of houses in the FISH Programme originally planned to go through developers was too exorbitant for civil servants hence the need to return to the drawing board.

Oyo-Ita said that the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) was currently partnering relevant Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to reduce cost of infrastructure and land.

She added that this partnership would further reduce the cost of the houses and make it affordable for civil servants, instead of the initial price placed on it by the developers.

She said that the major challenge FISH was encountering was that the concept of the programme was not captured by relevant MDAs in their various budgets, but has been addressed in 2018 budget.

“ Now we have to go back to the drawing board, we are now working with our infrastructure housing MDAs.

“To see how we can bring down the prices to a level that civil servants can actually take advantage of.

“The private developers will no longer have to bear the cost of the land and infrastructure because these are two things that cause high cost of houses,

“We will now take advantage of the developers input by way of skills and technical knowhow, while the government agencies provide the land and infrastructure.’’

The head of service expressed her gratitude to the FCT Minister, Minister of Power, Works and Housing for providing a district for the FISH programme.

She also thanked the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, for providing infrastructure for FISH in the 2018 budget, and the Minister of Finance for their contributions towards the programme.

‘Delay in judicial process affects housing delivery’

There are growing concerns that the delay in Nigeria judicial process, especially in commercial matters has compounded the inadequate housing for Nigerians. The agitations on housing deficits date back to 1991, when Nigeria was said to have housing deficit of seven million units. Since then, the deficits in housing requirements have been growing at 5.8 per cent per annum, which has given rise to a slum population estimated at about 70 per cent.

Whilst available statistics on Nigeria’s housing deficit paint a grim picture, the effect of delay in the nation’s judicial process has continued to worsen efforts at house delivery in the country. With a population of almost 180 million, according to data from the United Nations, an annual population growth rate of 2.8 per cent (2015) and an annual urban population growth rate of 4.7 per cent, Nigeria need urgent action to mitigate the deficit.

This is more so as global trends show that the world is experiencing housing crisis and various countries, especially in the global south, have approached the issue with the urgency it requires. According to the World Bank, the estimate for tackling Nigeria’s 17 million housing deficit is put at N59.5 trillion. This is not too far from the estimation of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria which had put it at about N56 trillion to be able to adequately meet the housing needs of Nigerians.

According to United Nations statistics, about 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing globally, while over 100 million are homeless. Nigeria hosts an uncomfortably large percentage of these two, with millions considered to live in substandard housing.Thus, the nation’s housing coverage rate still remained at dismal 25 per cent.But, experts said housing would continue to remain a mirage if left to the government alone, unless private developers are encouraged to invest in real estate.

However, with the slow adjudication process in the nation judicial process, primary and secondary mortgage institutions have classified investments in real estate as very high risk, at times attracting nearly 24 percent interest rate.The Guardian learnt that the offering is based on the difficulties in enforcing mortgage contracts and foreclosure on properties in local courts.

This is somewhat attributable to court congestion and the resulting slow adjudication process which is a key deterrent to mortgage financing.Given credence to this, Debo Adejana, a real estate entrepreneur, who heads one of Nigeria’s leading Mass Housing Development Companies; Realty Point Limited, said litigation is one of those things every developer dread so much.

Adejana, who had first hand experience of danger of delay in one of his firm’s project in Lagos, said no developer will want his project to be tied down by litigation because you cannot predict when it will finish because of the right of appeal.He stressed that his firm was lucky to come out of the problem through out of court settlement after two years before actual development on site.He said: ‘Cases in Nigeria can drag up to 10 years because of the right of appeal in our judicial process”.

Another developer, Jonathan Ekpeyong, said litigation started just at the point of selling to clients, which affected business and inability to pay back to the banks.Ekpeyong, who do not want to disclose the name of his firm, said the matter is not fully settled 15 years after they went to court.Beyond these was the case of the vast area of land that shares boundaries with the Oniru, the Elegushi, and the Olumegbon estates in Lekki area of Eti-Osa Local council in Lagos State, which is one of such cases that dragged for so long before amicable resolution of the problem.

The matter affected some estates such as Pinnock Beach Estate, Arcadia Estate, Beach Resort Estate, Friends Colony, Nicon Town, and a host of others.The legal battle involving Eletus and their lawyers, who reportedly got a warrant for 254.558 hectares and the move to assert claim to the land affected development in some estates in the area.Problem began in 1981 when the then Lagos State Governor, acting pursuant to the powers granted him under the Land Use Act, revoked all existing rights on the land in Eti-Osa and Ibeju Lekki areas of the state. The Ojomus, being owners of the land from time immemorial, had at that time, sold 254.558 hectares of land to the late Mr. Gbadamosi Bandele Eletu by deed of conveyance.

The conveyance, dated August 23, 1977, was registered as No.36 at Page 36 in Volume 1648 of the Lagos Lands Registry. But the Ojomus challenged the acquisition of their ancestral land in court, which reportedly ruled in their favour and invalidated the acquisition. In 1993, the Lagos State Government published another revocation notice No 20 Volume 26 of May 13, 1993.

It was however learnt that shortly after the revocation of 1993, the inheritors of the late Eletu challenged the right of the Lagos State Property Development Corporation, LSPDC, to use a portion of their land, which they bought from the Ojomus.The case went to the Supreme Court, and was decided several years after on July 12, 2013. There was also the legal battle waged by landlords of Shangisha against Lagos state government for 27 years over the soul of Magodo estate scheme.

However, 27 years are long, inordinately long period to get judgment in any court matter, let alone a case involving shelter over their heads ‘ one of the most basic needs of nature. The landlords’ victory is further dampened by the fact that it was the third time they would get judgment, their cases having been upheld by the High Court and the Court of Appeal; but government, for some reasons, failed to meet their desire.

Ripples of the Supreme Court judgment directing that 549 plots of land located in Magodo-Shangisha in Lagos, be given to their rightful owners soon began to splash on the property owners, with Shangisha Landlords Association pushing for compensation.The judgment sent apprehension among residents of the area, which later affected prices of property in the area.

Speaking on the impact of justice delay in housing delivery, the Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele said, it is generally acknowledged that one of the modern-day determinants of development in any environment is the effective protection of property and contract rights, and that this in itself requires a modest legal infrastructure embedding precise rules that are easily enforceable.

Emefiele, who spoke in Abuja on the theme: “Mortgage Disputes in Nigeria: The Need for Expeditious Resolution of Case”, at a workshop for judicial officers on mortgage, urged the judiciary to speed up the processes for deciding on mortgages and commercial disputes as way of fast-tracking the growth of the housing finance sector in Nigeria

Citing other climes like the United States of Ameriaca and Europe, Emefiele said mortgagees know that failure to pay on their mortgage results in drastic consequences such as the right of immediate take-over of the property through foreclosure. “In Nigeria, this is not the case and -therefore discourages banks from granting mortgage financing to clients.”
Referring to the 2016 Report of the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa which indicated Nigeria as having just an estimated 25 percent homeownership rate, he stressed that “Interestingly, the report highlighted legal and administrative constraints, rather than lack of funds or programmes, as some of the major issues constricting the growth of home ownership in Nigeria”, he stated.

Reacting to the impact to housing delivery, Lagos-based lawyer and a notable human rights activist, Mr. Johnson Esezoobo, said there should be a system that should allow judges to determine if a matter can go on or not especially when there are frivolous.According to him, Nigerians are yet to clarify the judicial system to determine when litigation is necessary or not. He stressed that many lawyers do not have reasons for engaging the court process other than pursuing personal motive and to blackmail others.

Ordinarily in commercial litigations like property matters, most of the cases should not get to court but because lawyers are often desperate for quick results, irrespective of how it was achieved, they took to litigation.“Where a party has brought some documents even without special knowledge of forensic analysis of documents should be able to know that they are not proper and discourage such litigation.“Unfortunately, our courts are encouraging litigations. You found out that attitude of courts encouraging appeal or litigation does not help in quick resolution of matters. They want to hear all the matters even when they can look at the papers and within a short time discourage litigation. We don’t have that kind of attitude in our judicial system. “People brings all manners of facts and documents and the court will indulge them on it. The court is more interested in listening to all manners of things even when they are frivolous”, he added.

For the second vice president of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Monday Ubani, each delay in judicial process affects the economy generally. “If we don’t fine-tune our legal system to ensure quick delivery of justice, the economy is actually the first culprit. It will also affect the inflow of foreign investments into the country because the foreign investors will basically look at how quickly you can resolve issues in case of disputes. Where it takes ages, to resolve legal issues, the investors will not be too keen to invest in your country and the foreign investment involved even in the housing sector.

“ Even, the local investor, who may not enter to the development of real estate and housing would not want to because of these litigations. It will take some years, imagine you have a housing dispute and it takes 20 years to resolve how do you justify that and people will not be interested in that area. Generally delay in legal resolution of issues affects the economy and especially with housing delivery, it will affects investors that will come into that area knowing fully well that it takes ages to resolve issues. So what we need to do is to create more courts and employ more judges in our judiciary”, he said.

‘FG under-developing housing sector’

The Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV) has expressed concerns over the passage of national budgets without implementation on the housing sector, stressing that there is so much deceit and under development in the sector.

NIESV stated that budgets meant for the sector have continued to be treated with levity, stressing that while only fifty percent of what was budgeted last year was released, the sector may not receive up to 25percent of its allocation in this year’s budget due to its late passage.

President of the Institute, Mr. Rowland Abonta, said time had come for the federal government, National Assembly and Stakeholders to sit and plan the housing programme to achieve development in the sector.

He said: “There is no master plan on ground for effective housing production and delivery in Nigeria. The problem of Nigeria has not been the issue of budgetary provision. The greatest problem we have is budget implementation. So whether they removed the budget meant for housing or not, we may not see any new thing in that sector. “In the last two years, budget had been made for housing but nobody is accounting for what quantity have we added to the housing sector. It is like throwing a drop of water into the Ocean. The president himself must acknowledge and our legislators must acknowledge that there is a serious need for stakeholders in housing to sit down together and decide on master plan for housing in Nigeria”.

He said the government should stop using budget padding as excuses for its failure to develop the sector, stating that Nigerians are tired of failed promises.“I am a private practitioner and in the last financial year we spent billions bidding for housing in the real estate sector only to be told that the same presidency has released only fifty percent of the budget for 2017 and now budget is signed in June, you can imagine that we won’t get 25 percent of this year’s budget. So it is not about budget, these are cheap excuses, political excuses by those in authority to shy away from responsibility to the people that put them there”, he said.

Abonta said members of the Institute were in Enugu for the management meeting to review policy issues affecting the organization adding that part of the challenges militating against the profession was the infiltration of quacks.He lamented that government, public and private institutions have continued to patronize them to the detriment of the country. However, he said NIESV is poised to check the trend and urged Nigerians to desist from patronizing them.

Senate applauds Anambra for contributions to National Housing Scheme

Senate Committee on Lands has hailed Anambra State government for commitment toward partnering the Federal Government in the contribution to the National Housing Scheme.

Chairman, Senate Committee on Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Banabas Gemade, said this when he led his committee on a courtesy visit to Governor Willie Obiano, at Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, on Tuesday.

Other members who were in Anambra include Uwajumogu Benjamin from Imo State, Urhoghide Aishagbonnriodion from Edo State, and other personalities.

The Committee was in Anambra on an oversight function and toured three Federal Government projects in the state. The projects are the Federal Secretariat, Zik’s Mausoleum and National Housing Projects.
Gemade noted the readiness of the Federal Government to partner states for realisation of the National Housing Schemes.

He commended Obiano for providing land for the housing project, but noted that some other states had yet to express interest in embracing the scheme.

“For a very long time since President Shehu Shagari days in office, no government has embarked on National Housing Programme. The APC government has made an attempt.

“We really want to partner with state governments to ensure that they contribute to housing needs of citizens in their various states. Not many states have been forthcoming, but Anambra is contributing toward the project,’’ Gemade said.

The committee chairman described the Zik’s Mausoleum “as a monument that must be completed to preserve the legacies of the country’s past leader.’’

He re-assured that the Mausoleum would be delivered before September this year.

Obiano commended the committee for its interest at ensuring timely completion of federal projects sited in the state, saying he was particularly happy that the contract sum for the Mausoleum had been fully paid.

BUHARI LAMENTS REDUCTION IN NHP FUNDING BY 8.7BILLION

President Muhammadu Buhari has lamented the reduction in the proposed funding for the National Housing Programme (NHP) by the National Assembly.

Buhari stated this while signing the 2018 appropriation bill into law at the State House, Abuja.

The provision for the Federal Government’s National Housing Programme was cut by 8.7 billion Naira.

The President while expressing concern over the changes made to the 2018 budget, noted that “the logic behind the Constitutional direction that budgets should be proposed by the Executive is that it is the Executive that knows and defines its policies and projects”

He said “unfortunately that has not been given much regard in what has been sent to me. The National Assembly made cuts amounting to 347 billion Naira in the allocations to 4,700 projects submitted to them for consideration and introduced 6,403 projects of their own amounting to 578 billion Naira.

Buhari said “Many of the projects cut are critical and may be difficult, if not impossible, to implement with the reduced allocation. Some of the new projects inserted by the National Assembly have not been properly conceptualized, designed and costed and will therefore be difficult to execute.”

The President however said “notwithstanding the above stated observations, I have decided to sign the 2018 Budget in order not to further slowdown the pace of recovery of our economy, which has doubtlessly been affected by the delay in passing the budget.”

Buhari said it is his intention to seek to remedy some of the most critical of the issues through a supplementary/ amendment budget which he said he hopes the National Assembly will be able to expeditiously consider.

Delta Assembly approves N600 million loan for housing project

The Delta State House of Assembly on Tuesday approved the request by the executive to obtain a revolving N600 million loan from United Bank of Africa for a 10,000 housing unit project.

The approval of the request followed a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Tim Owhefere, at plenary in Asaba which was seconded by Daniel Mayuku (PDP-Warri South-West)

Leading the debate, Mr Owhefere noted that the housing units when completed would help to tackle the housing challenge faced by civil servants in the state.

He said other people in the state would also benefit from the scheme and commended the state government for the initiative.

The motion was unanimously adopted when the Speaker, Sheriff Oborevwori, put it to a voice vote.

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had earlier forwarded the request to the assembly to enable government to facilitate the takeoff of the housing units in Illah, Oshimili North Local Government Area of the state.

Mr Okowa said that his administration was determined to ensure lasting solution to the alarming housing deficiency especially among civil servants in Asaba, the state capital.

The governor noted that despite the approval by the State Executive Council, the assembly needed to give its own approval via a resolution.

He said that the state government had entered into partnership with Greenfield Assets Limited and its partner Lafarge Holcim Africa Plc, for the construction of the 10,000 housing units.

Mr Okowa said that the state had already signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the developers in February 2016, adding that the state had also met some of its obligations.

According to him, Greenfield Assets Limited had requested government to provide a N600 million revolving bank guarantee to mitigate the gap in the takeoff of the project.

Affordable Ways to Transform Your House into a Cosy Home

Having a luxury hotel style within your home does more than just transform it into a cosy home. It emphasizes the fact that regardless of your budget, your home can be anything you want it to be especially if you have a soft spot for a lavish and pristine outlook.

Building a luxury home in Nigeria or any part of the world requires a budget that runs into millions. This is fine if you can afford it but if you are building, designing, decorating or renovating your home on a budget, here are proven tips that can help you achieve a cosy home without going overboard.

Give Your Bedroom the Lavish Touch
Think back to all the nice hotels you have ever slept in. You should remember that the beds always take centre stage with matching pillows, curtains and bedding.

Most people tend to ignore their bedrooms especially because guests don’t get to see it but if you’re aiming for a luxury style bedroom and a cosy home, don’t ignore the bedroom.

Aim for a meticulous touch with your bedroom and be deliberate with every tiny detail. For your mattress, go for one that is supportive. Complement this with a layer of plump down pillows and fine cotton sheets. Consider making provisions for a down comforter to seal the look of a top-notch bedroom.

Clone a Spa in Your Bathroom
The bigger your bathroom, the more creative and adventurous you can get with transforming this part of your house into a cosy home. The easiest way to this is to rely on your memory if you have ever spent time in a hotel with a luxurious bathroom.

What you want to achieve here is a bathroom that has a lovely shower curtain, plush towels, scented candles and a beautiful bathtub. Remember that the idea here is not to spend so much. Keep your spendings within what you can afford. There’s no point borrowing money from your friends or colleagues to install heated tile flooring or rhodium towel racks in your bathroom. This defeats the purpose of keeping it affordable.

Focus on designing a bathroom that is serene and functional. If you can afford a glass-enclosed walk-in shower, go for it. If your budget won’t accommodate this, channel your energy into other fine elements like a large mirror, high-quality bathrobes and a plethora of pleasant scents. You can even hang a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door of your bathroom if you want.

Take Control of Your Climate
A cosy home not only looks cosy. it’s also imperative that they feel cosy. Find a way to regulate the temperature in your home in a way that it is never too hot or too cold.

A hot home will only leave guests fanning themselves as beads of sweat gradually build on their bodies. On the other hand, if your home becomes too cold, your guests can become so uncomfortable, they will struggle with concentrating on simple conversations.

Given Nigeria’s epileptic supply of electricity, a generator is a golden necessity. The average temperature in Lagos, for instance, fluctuates between 24 and 33 degrees. If you want a cosy home, you need an air conditioner in your home and not just one. For a heightened level of aesthetics, opt for split units.

Consider automating the process of achieving a perfect temperature in your home by using a thermostat. A thermostat automatically regulates temperature by activating a device when the temperature in your home reaches a certain point.

If your budget does not support a thermostat or an air conditioner, buy a ceiling fan or standing fan to regulate the temperature. You can complement this with blinds and shades to sunny windows.

Light Up the House
A cosy home is not a dark or depressing. You’ll notice how well-lit luxury hotels are with chandeliers, mood lights and sconces. Your starting point should be your overhead lights. Take out outdated designs and replace them with modern alternatives that blend in perfectly with your rooms.

If you plan to use mood lighting with your overhead lights, remember to install dimmers in them. If your budget allows for something extra, consider adding some sconces over your framed arts and paintings
Keep Your Space Organised
You don’t have to hire a designer to hire a designer to arrange your space but you can take several cues from his/her work. Feel free to scroll through magazines on interior decoration, online galleries and several other online pages for visual inspiration. One thing that stands out in a home that is organised is that everything has a purpose. There is a deliberate effort to make everything in the house functional and purposeful.

Organised homes are devoid of clutter just as you would find in luxurious hotels in Nigeria. Things like decorative bowls and baskets are used to hide clutter.

You can spice up your rooms by adding lamps to you side tables on both sides of your bed or sofa. The principle of organising your home applies to every room in the house regardless of how big or small your space is.

Final Thoughts on Cosy Home
Never forget that it is possible for you to clone a luxury hotel within the four walls of your house while keeping it affordable. Your budget should not be a hindrance to your ability to add a dash of glamour into your home.

A luxury hotel gives you that an opportunity to escape into its polished ambience, scented space and soothing space; to a point where it is worth every ‘kobo’ you spend on it. Why not transform your home into a space that offers you the same experience on a daily basis? Try these tips and open up your mind to be more creative with your space.
