Federal Government creating jobs through mass housing projects – Official

The South East Zonal Director, Housing, Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Arthur Abara says the Federal Government is creating jobs through mass housing projects across the country.
Abara said this in Enugu on Friday at the site of the National Housing Programme Estate in Ugwuogo Nike during the media tour of ongoing Federal Government projects in the South East.

He said that this current effort was the first time since 1999 that the Federal Government was directly investing in the housing sector for workers and Nigerians at large.

He, however, said that the ongoing efforts were not just aimed at providing affordable houses for Nigerians but a deliberate attempt to create employment for Nigerians.

“Housing is now seen as one of the key indices for employment and for engaging people. That is why we have to build in every state,” he said.

The zonal director regretted some of the challenges they had to grapple with before beginning construction in some states.

“We had the issue of getting a suitable site in Enugu State because they initially gave us a place that was so hilly and with coal underneath. So we could not build there.

“They gave us another place that had no access road. The current site was the last place they gave us and we have no other option because if we reject it we may not build at all,” he said.

Abara, however, commended the state government for showing interest in the project, adding that there were states that had not even allocated sites for the project.


“This project is expected to be replicated across the federation but there are states that have not given out lands.

“You build wherever is allocated to you because President Muhammadu Buhari wants to make great impact on the housing sector,” Abara said.

The Deputy Director, Public Building and Housing Department of the ministry, Mrs Tina Eneh, said that the building was for low and medium income earners.

Eneh said that the Federal Government had made commitment to make the houses affordable for the targeted income group.

She said that the facility comprised one bedroom, two bedrooms and three bedrooms apartments with a complete neighbourhood housing schools, recreation center, worship centers, clinic and shopping areas.

“We have four blocks of single rooms, six blocks of two bed rooms and 24 flats of condominium with a place for the handicapped. We are looking to complete it by the end of this year,” she said.

Eneh said that enrollees of the National Housing Fund (NHF) were qualified to benefit from the project.

“What qualifies a civil servant to be a beneficiary is to be an enrollee of the NHF. However, with the help of mortgage institutions it can be worked out even if you do not have the funds available,” Eneh said.

Also, the Controller of Housing, Enugu, Mr Godwin Emesue, said that the ministry was working out the final modalities for the distribution of the housing units.

Emesue said that there were no serious challenges in the construction of the houses, adding that members of the host community had been friendly.

A supplier at the site, Mr Ezekiel Eze said that his engagement to supply materials at the site had enabled him go back to school to complete his higher education.

Eze, who said that he dropped out of school due to financial challenges said: “I was searching for what to do to continue my education. I then applied as a supplier here and was employed.

“Right now I am back to school to complete my Higher National Diploma (HND) with the little money I get,” Eze said..

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola said that since 2015 to date, the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria ( FMBN ) had issued 2,724 mortgages to Nigerians.

The minister noted that the mortgages which were issued under the National Housing Fund (NHF) scheme were worth N20.237 billion.


He said the ministry was piloting a National Housing Programme and constructing houses in 33 states to ensure more Nigerians own homes.
“We are doing this to validate and test what type of housing design responds to Nigeria’s diverse cultural, climatic and religious needs, so as to ascertain what is acceptable and affordable.

“We are at different stages of construction in different states, and we have recommended these designs to FHA, without imposing them.

“Our decision is informed by the evidence of previous housing initiatives that people did not take up resulting in empty houses that still abound in almost every state of Nigeria,’’ he said.

The minister explained that the untaken houses in spite of housing deficit suggested that they were not affordable or acceptable to the people.

He urged the newly inaugurated member of the boards to reposition their brands and provide guidance for the Managing Directors and Management teams of the orgaisations.

“For the avoidance of doubt, let me state that the policy of government is to deliver affordable housing, acceptable to Nigerians.

“You must, therefore, use your positions to affect the lives of millions of people who will partake and benefit of the prosperity that a housing economy can offer,’’ he said.

In response, the FHA board Chairman, Sen. Lawal Shuaibu promised to employ collective efforts to reposition the housing sector.

Shuaibu assured that national housing policy would be effectively implemented.

Also speaking, Mr Adewale Adeeyo, FMBN board Chairman commended the laudable programmes of the ministry aimed at raising the standard of Nigerians.

Adeeyo pledged that the FMBN board would make a monumental impact through provision of affordable mortgages to Nigerians.


Infinity Trust Mortgage Bank Plc, has accused the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) of illegally sealing its premises in Garki, Abuja and thereby making it to lose investment opportunity worth several millions of Naira.

The Chief Financial Officer of the bank, Samson Abaka, said FIRS officials accompanied by armed security operatives stormed the bank premises and sealed it up without prior notice, over alleged nonpayment of tax.

Abaka alleged further that the action of the FIRS Officials scared away customers and investors who were already in the bank transacting business.

He emphasized that the bank has paid its tax up to date and wondered why a reputable government agency like the FIRS will act without consulting its tax record.


“We immediately went to FIRS office to salvage the situation which has already cost the company millions of Naira. We presented all our tax receipts for 2015, 2016 and 2017 which shows that the company is not in any way indebted in tax payment. The officer in charge promised to send officials to unseal the premises the next day (Friday) , but as at 9 a.m Friday, March 2, 2018, the premises is still under seal,” The chief financial officer explained.

Also, the Head Admin and Human Resources of the bank, Fumi Adetunji who corroborated the statement of the Chief Financial Officer said the FIRS supposed to have a standard procedure of enforcing compliance in line with the best practices. She insisted that the bank is not in any way owing tax, adding the action of the FIRS has put the reputation of the bank at stake.

The management of the bank therefore called on the FIRS to immediately unseal its premises.

As at the time of filling the report, staff and customers of the bank were seen outside the sealed premises looking stranded as their belongings were still inside the bank.

Documents sighted by our reporter revealed that in 2015 alone, Infinity Trust Mortgage Bank paid N40,000,000 as tax. The mortgage bank is rated from it’s recent stock exchange award as the leading mortgage bank in the country

The FIRS is yet to respond to the allegation.

More Nigerians getting poorer under Buhari govt – IMF

The International Monetary Fund has said more Nigerians have gotten poorer under the President Muhammadu Buhari government despite the country’s slow recovery from recession.

In a report released yesterday, the IMF said Nigeria needs urgent economic reforms. It identified risks to growth, including additional delays to implementing policies and reforms ahead of the 2019 elections, security tensions, and oil prices, a fall in which could see capital flows reversed.


The IMF however said that though the outlook for growth had improved, it still remained challenging.

The Central Bank of Nigeria frequently injects hundreds of millions of dollars into the foreign exchange market to keep its own rates stable.

The IMF further singled out the central bank, saying it should discontinue direct interventions in the economy.

The IMF further repeated its call for Nigeria to simplify its complex foreign exchange system which has left large gaps between official rates and various windows that certain groups can use to get other rates.

“Moving towards a unified exchange rate should be pursued as soon as possible. The IMF does not support the exchange measures that have given rise to the exchange restrictions and multiple currency practices,” the report stated.

“Comprehensive and coherent” economic policies “remain urgent and must not be delayed by approaching elections and recovering oil prices,” it stated in its annual Article IV review of Nigeria’s economy.

“Further delays in policy action, including because of pre-election pressures, can only make the inevitable adjustment more difficult and costlier.

“Higher oil prices would support a recovery in 2018 but a ‘muddle-through’ outlook is projected for the medium term under current policies, with fiscal dominance and structural constraints leading to continuing falls in real GDP per capita,” the report added.
