Work begins on Zimbabwe’s new Parliament building

Construction work on Zimbabwe’s new parliament building has been kick-started by President Mnangagwa at a foundation stone laying ceremony carried out recently.

The project is being funded by a grant from the Chinese government that will aid the cash strapped country realise its dream of replacing its current august house that was constructed in the colonial era with a seating capacity of 100 but which currently accommodates over 200 lawmakers. The new building will be able to accomodate over 650.

The new project is located on Mt Hampten about 18 kilometers north west of the capital Harare. It is  envisaged that the building will become the nucleus around which a smart city will emerge offering housing, hotels and shopping amenities.

According to an artists impression the building has a circular layout with an outer perimeter that will have offices and an inner core that will accomodate the main floor of the house. It will cover a floor area of about 33 thousand square metres

Some estimates put the construction of the new parliament building at US$46 million that will be funded by a grant from the Chinese government which had been a heavy supporter of the previous regime of Robert Mugabe and appears to be continuing this trend. The project was first mooted when the former president visited China in 2014,but its construction was hampered by a lack of infrastructure such as roads and water to enable construction work to start.

The construction work is being carried out by the Shanghai Construction Group  which is one of the twenty largest construction companies in the world. It has had several operations on the continent of Africa ranging from housing, hotel construction as well as mining.  The construction of Zimbabwe’s parliament building is expected to take 32 months.

Corporations worried about state housing ministries usurping roles

The Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria (AHCN) has blamed state housing ministries for the usurpation of its statutory roles and responsibilities in housing construction and development. . The group observed that the situation is purely unnecessary duplication of duty, which will in the long run cause distraction, unfair competition, and sheer wastages/repetition of efforts and resources.

AHCN President, Mohammed Baba Adamu who spoke at a two-day national workshop/ the 98th Council meeting of the association, with the theme, ‘Housing as Veritable Tools for Economic Recovery’ held in Abuja, urged housing ministries to strictly reduce its activities to policy formulation and monitor statutory parastatals to ensure policy compliance and accomplishment.

“There is no doubt that state housing agencies have potential to meet the housing needs of the people but this cannot be achieved without the support of the state governments.

On efforts to improve housing in the country, AHCN boss said the organisation is strategising to bring back affordable mass housing provision with a proposed 1,000 housing units in each of the state of the federation and Abuja.

“We plan to kick off with a pilot scheme of 5, 000 housing units in selected states details of which will be unveil shortly. Arrangements for the funding are being finalised to ensure that the houses are affordable with provision for mortgages for potential buyers through our off-takers data base which are currently being compiled in collaboration with our partner in each of the state of the federation especially the civil servants for the programme”, he stated.

Adamu who also spoke on, ‘Housing the rural populace: the local government option’, informed the gathering that it’s imperative for local governments to be proactive and embark on profitable ventures through strategic partnership with other relevant government agencies and private investors to enhance productivity and the development of the housing sector.

In his submission, the Director General, Nigerian Building and Road Research Institute, (NBRRI), Prof. Danladi Matawal, re-echoed the need to strengthen access to finance, operations and building maintenance, building component standardisation and infrastructure.

Matawal said the task of providing decent, affordable housing is a growing challenge for stakeholders in developing economies who are faced with the need to overcome the present housing deficit, which would require a daunting financial resource and Infrastructure.

Matawal said as access to finance poses a great challenge to the industry expansion, countries could improve underwriting by establishing credit bureaus, which are uncommon in developing economies, training and certifying property appraisers.

In some countries, he said, collective-savings programs like provident funds and building societies have helped low-income households to accumulate down payments, with the pooled savings also providing capital for low-interest mortgages.

He stated that infrastructural development was important for improve housing, stressing that where many areas lack adequate transport, water, electricity, and sanitation infrastructure, providing affordable housing could be a difficult experience.

Also speaking, the president, Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria, (REDAN), Ugochukwu Chime explained that REDAN in collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing and eleven other institutions have established the National Real Estate Data Collation and Management Programme (NRE-DCMP).

According to him, the initiative is aimed at developing a comprehensive collation and management of data for planning, preconstruction, construction and post construction in the real estate sector of the country.

The sectorial information, he stated, will help in policy formulation for the development of the sector and unleash its potential for employment generation, inclusive socio-economic growth as well as provision of shelter.

P/Harcourt Building Collapse: Rescuers seem to have lost hope of finding more survivors

With dozens of victims still feared trapped and rescue operations hindered by inadequacy of equipment to cut through each of seven 28-inch concrete decking now piled against its basement, the collapsed Port Harcourt building has assumed a monumental tragedy.

*The rubble

Nobody is sure exactly how many persons were in the basement and those on the ground floor when all of the six and partly completed seventh floor came crashing down. However, Chigozie Anayo, 27, a concrete caster at the failed project, who cheated death with facial injuries, could only estimate. “We were many. If they say we are only 38 that have come out, I believe we have more than that number still trapped”, he told Sunday Vanguard.

“It was pay day. Even those who had no duty to carry out that day were alerted to come and collect their wages, so were some contractors. Some were in the basement all eager to have their share of the millions of Naira in wages brought and trapped”.

At press time on Friday, eight days after the tragedy, the rescue team, supervised by Rivers State Commissioner for Special Duties, Emeka Onowu, put the casualties at eight mortalities and 26 survivors. Through the weekend of the collapse, hopes were high of more persons coming out alive as rescue operations continued, just as some relatives could still engage trapped victims in phone conversation, confirming they were still alive as they cried for help. Regrettably, after a lucky survivor, simply identified as Ogoni born Christian, was pulled out bleeding on the nose five days after the collapse, further hopes of pulling out more victims alive were dampened amid feelers that underground flooding was rising to suffocating levels on the basement where most victims had remained safe.

Rotary’s interest

The dimming hopes have, however, not deterred relatives of still trapped victims from keeping vigil at the tragic incident’s site. Among the expectant crowd still keeping vigil at the scene of the tragedy are members of global charity group, Rotary International, who have opened a stand at the spot. Many third generation banks are also visible at the site with the speculation that they may be among institutions supporting the rescue operations.

Though known for health charity and social investments across the world, Rotary’s robust visibility at the scene, to the extent that its Nigerian member on the international board, Yinka Babalola, had to show up, was provoked by reports that one of its own, Rotarian Ihionu Ekene Morgan, was among victims still trapped in the building. Morgan, a member of District 9141 of Rotary, Nigeria, is said to be the supplier of scaffolders for the collapsed building.

Chimezie Ihionu, Morgan’s agitated cousin, had narrated to Sunday Vanguard, “We were at a stone throw, The Boss Club, playing snooker when Morgan was alerted that money had arrived to pay workers and suppliers. “Shockingly, someone called less than five minutes later that the building had collapsed and Ekene (Morgan) was inside. We have stayed put at the scene since Friday. Ekene was calling us among others trapped inside. This (penultimate Saturday) morning, his phone is no longer reachable.” In the hope of seeing its member make it out alive, Rotary has been a big contributor to the rescue efforts, providing hospitality to rescuers and, at some point, assisting in the mobilization of equipment.

Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike, who declared the owner of the building wanted to face inquiry, and the police authorities in Rivers, who now have the landlord and other key stakeholders in custody, have refused to reveal his (landlord) identity. Speculations have however mostly pointed to a Bayelsan born power broker with vast investments in hospitality business in Port Harcourt and beyond.

Police Public Relations Officer, Rivers State Command, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed that the architect and other key persons involved in the failed project were also in custody. Omoni said, “The owner of the building has been arrested. He’s with us helping with investigations. We also have with us the site engineer, the architect, the builder himself. We have been able to get statements from some of the survivors, sharing their accounts of what has happened. “Investigations are discreet. We have also deployed our Anti-Bomb Unit. Our men are probing to also try to see other possible angles, like if there was any sabotage.” Omoni expressed the police’s disappointment at the failure of Rivers State Urban Development Ministry’s officials to respond to the police invitation to offer explanations on government role on approvals for the construction of the building. However, before Omoni’s reservations, the Urban Development Ministry’s Commissioner, Dr Reason Onya, had resigned his appointment.

Onya, in a statement, told Rivers people, “After due consultation with my family on the collapsed seven-storey hotel building under construction, I have decided to ‘step aside’ as the Honourable Commissioner for Urban Development and Physical Planning on 28/11/2018 during the State Executive Council Meeting. “The building plan was approved on 18/7/2014 and revalidated by me on 14/9/2018, because the file was missing.

To those that lost their loved ones, I am pained, so pained that each time I visit the site, my heart bleeds; each time I hear news of it, I am perturbed. “I am sincerely sorry for all the pains you all have gone through in the cause of this that my official assignment is involved.”

Blame game, public anger

From professional bodies involved in the construction or monitoring of projects of this nature, to residents and relatives of loved ones, the tragedy has generated into blame game. While the state branch of the Nigerian Institute of Architects, through its Chairman, Asommba Egbuonu, blamed relevant ministries’ officials for lack of professionalism, others pointed to greed on the part of the project owner and compromise by supervising engineers and contractors engaged to deliver it. Ihionu, cousin of still trapped Morgan, lamented, “There has been no sense of urgency or coordination in the rescue operations.

The body language of the rescue team seems to be of hope lost. We have overheard them saying there could be no more survivors. It is too early to draw such a conclusion. “They have informed us that Julius Berger is in charge of the rescue operations yet the only Julius Berger branded equipment on site are ambulances and Hilux vans. “No diggers, cutters, cranes or any requisite equipment/motors belonging to them are here. The excavators seem to belong to MCC. “Time is of the essence now. We are heartbroken and helpless, unable to do anything as our loved ones wither within the rubble of this site.” Survivors’ stories Meanwhile, at the Braitwaite Memorial Hospital, Port Harcourt, 39-year-old Emmanuel Ikuje, one of the earliest survivors to be rescued, under medical attention, said he could not explain his escape. Ikuje, a Benue indigene, said, “I have been doing oil works for such big projects for years.

What I have seen is one or two floors drop down from defects. I have never encountered a case where the entire floors of a seven-storey building crumbled to the foot. “I narrowly escaped. Several persons, I can’t give exact figures, were on the ground floor waiting to be paid from the money we heard the project owner brought. Suddenly, the house came down on us, majority crowded at the front entrance area. “I tried escaping the beam dropping towards me, but it struck me down by my right arm and a mix of sand and broken concrete covered me. I found it difficult to breathe and shout for help. After minutes of digging around much of my buried body, I came out alive.”

Ejijah Benjamin, 21-year-old plumbing apprentice, was rescued with suspected broken spine as doctors probed into his case at the hospital where he lay motionless on a stretcher when Sunday Vanguard visited. His mother, Gift Benjamin, told Sunday Vanguard, “He can’t move his body. They are telling us his spine is affected and he can’t open his mouth. He was supporting his boss on plumbing at the building project site. That his Oga is still trapped inside.” John Paul, 39, from Plateau State, another artisan rescued alive, couldn’t talk from the pains of bruises sustained. Paul’s elder brother, Francis Pam, however, said, “His own is not too serious and the doctors have been giving him meaningful attention since government first moved some of them to a private hospital before the transfer to BMH.

It is well. We thank God”.

How To Access Family Homes Funds Loan – Adewole

As more developers, embrace the Federal Government initiative of providing affordable housing to low-income earners through the Family Homes Funds, the question on the lips of developers is how can they access financing from Family Homes Funds.

To answer the question, the Managing Director of Family Homes Funds, Mr Femi Adewole, shed more light on how financing can be assessed, he opened up during the question and answer time, after he presented his paper at the ongoing National Workshop of the Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria, in Abuja.

Click here to watch weekly episodes of Housing Development Programme on AIT

He said, ‘’we are currently providing capital for developers, whether private or public, but the key requirements are these; we only finance developers, who are building homes that fall within our target cost indicators, and they are challenging, that means that more slots exist for the one bedroom houses.

In terms of transfer cost; transfer cost been the price to the occupier, of no more than N2.5 to 3million . The two-bed being 4, to N4.5million, and the three-bed being N5.5 to N6million’’.

Speaking further he said ‘’we are basically financing 100% of the construction cost, and 15% advance payment to get you started, and in some cases we are also giving you an off take guarantee to de-risk the project for you. So it’s an extremely attractive package, because the intent is to bring supply at the level of the market for mortgage origination’’.

On the documents required by Family Homes Fund, he said,

‘’at this stage we are only looking for 3 or 4 sets of documents, number one, we need a very brief information on who you are, because you need to know who you are giving money to, how they are organized and how they handle money. And of course their experience and track record.

The second set is about the technical information, obviously your typical drawings, architecture, civil and all of that.

The third information that we need is the financial appraisal and assessment, and to make that easy for you, we have developed a fairly simple template, which we will e-mail to you and you can fill, and it basically tells you what is happening with regards to the cash flow and the viability of the project.

The fourth document is some statements around your marketing strategy, we want to understand what your strategy and your plan is for linking the production of the houses, to the buyers, that is an area that is of interest to us. So it’s basically as simple as that’’.

He added that interested developers can check the Family Homes Fund website to see the guidelines to developers for accessing financing from the Family Homes Funds.

REDAN Throws Weight Behind Family Homes Fund

Against the backdrop of the widening housing gap in the country,and new Initiatives supported by the federal government to address the housing shortfall, the Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria, (REDAN), has reiterated its support for Family Homes Fund, one of such new initiatives.

The support came from the President of REDAN, Rev Ugochukwu Chime, during an interview at the National Workshop of the Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria (AHCN),in Abuja.

He said, ‘’Family homes fund is a welcome development that will cater to the yearnings for low income housing for years, we need a new paradigm to cater for the poor. And to ensure that the housing need of the poor is met’’.

He noted that apart from the provision of houses to low-income earners, it is an initiative that will create employment to many Nigerians.

‘’with the Family Homes Fund coming into place, we are now creating an opportunity for employment in the sites where those projects will be developed, they have a target of 500,000 housing units, in a year, that is, if you multiply by 8 people, that will give us 4million Nigerians who are gainfully employed, so the family homes fund and the N power projects, are a symbiotic relationship, and with that as a fulcrum, we will begin to look at other issues, like land use, and land administration’’.

On the challenges that such initiatives usually face, he said, ‘’I must say the man driving it is one who has had international exposure, Internally they have a very good mechanism, but like we all know, we need an established managerial component, you need to have the land administration processes streamlined, you need to have the transaction cost on land reduced, you need to have the transaction time on land reduced, also you need to have, some of the other parties, take some concessions, including the developers, and reduce the profit expectations, so that at the end of the day, we will meet the target of achieving housing for the poor.

So, Family Homes Fund, on its own cannot do it because, a chain is as strong as its weakest link, they cannot start the whole process and end it in the office, they need other stakeholders in the real estate value chain to come together, and that is what we have been doing as REDAN, because we understand that, we stand at the centre of it all’’.

Family Homes Fund is a partnership between the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority as founding shareholders. The Fund is the largest affordable housing-focused fund in Sub-Sahara Africa, leveraging its significant capital (in excess of N1trn by 2023) to facilitate access to affordable housing for millions of Nigerians on low to medium income groups.

Homes renovation loan: N15.7bn so far disbursed to over 19,000 beneficiaries- FMBN

 

THE Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria(FMBN) on Wednesday said it has so far disbursed a total sum of N15.7 billion to 19, 169 beneficiaries across the country under the Home Renovation Loan window.

Also, it said the sum of N1.8 billion was approved for 195 staff of the Federal Road Safety Corps( FRSC)as mortgage loans for the purchase of their own homes.

Managing Director (MD) of the bank, Arc. Ahmed Dangiwa made the disclosure in Abuja, at the presentation of N640 million cheques to 640 FRSC beneficiaries of the FMBN homes renovation loan.

He said this brings the total disbursement to the corps to N1.2 billion for 1,207 beneficiaries across the country.

According to the MD, the homes renovation loan window afford Nigerians who are contributors to the National Housing Fund, an opportunity to access mortgage loans to renovate or improve existing properties either personally or family owned.

He explained that unlike the regular mortgage, the process includes the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding(MoU) and execution of letters of an undertaking by the various State governments, collaborating agencies and employers for the deduction and remittance of loan payments to the bank.

While stressing its mandate, which is to provide a cheap source of loanable funds to facilitate affordable home ownership for the low and medium income group in the country, he said the bank developed concessionary loan windows to enable Nigerians access mortgages.

However, he noted that the realization of its mandate has continued to suffer setbacks due to lack of access to land, inadequate funding for the housing sector, low income of prospective borrowers which affects affordability, among others.

In consideration of these challenges, it became necessary for FMBN to develop some quick-wins that will allow a greater number of Nigerians access to the National Housing Fund. Consequently, the FMBN Home renovation loan was introduced by the bank.

While the bank continued to face considerable challenges particularly on its lack of adequate capital, all these indices indicate that we have performed creditably well in the discharge of our mandate given the lean resources at our disposal.

We have also given succour to Nigerians with the cancellation of equity requirement for NHF loans under 5 Million and a reduction in equity percentage payment to 10 per cent for loans from N5m to N15m from the initial 20 per cent to 30 per cent. This is bound to further boost the affordability of many Nigerians in accessing mortgages, he said.

In his remarks, the Corps Marshal, FRSC Dr Boboye Oyeyemi said the disbursement to FRSC A is the highest disbursement to any Ministry, Departments and Agencies(MDAs).

He said his tenure will ensure that all its staff amounting to over 30,000 owns a house assuring that beneficiaries will ensure repayment of accessed loans.

We have a workforce of over 30,000 and i told them that my joy is that by the time I finish my tenure, everybody will have a roof and it is going to be a one man one house and I am happy we are making progress in respect of this and the first thing I did was to proceed to FMBN because in our salary there is always a deduction of NHF and it is resident with the FMBN.

I want to express our deep appreciation to the management of the FMBN for having trust in us this is the highest disbursement to any MDA. When it comes to repayment we are more than willing to comply with the monthly remittance and this is why we are getting more, he said.

AHCN calls on state governmets to develop political will in funding housing development

The National workshop of the Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria (AHCN), began in Abuja today, with the theme: Tackling Housing Deficit and Affordability Challenge as a Channel for Driving Economic Recovery.

The workshop, which will hold from 28th to 30th November 2018, is being attended by public and private sector stakeholders, in the housing industry. Speaking at the workshop, the National President of the AHCN, Mohamed Baba Adamu, said the role of AHCN is to assist all the member associations in the area of housing development.

He said ‘’we usually source for funds for member associations to deliver on their mandate of providing shelter, and we assist them in positively engaging with their respective state governments, so that they are able to deliver affordable houses for Nigerians’’.

On the challenges faced by most housing corporations, he said ‘’The major challenge we have is the issue of funding, nowadays most states are no longer funding housing corporations as the ought to, most state governments look at housing provision as a social service, and something that can be done only when they are able, so with the limited resources available to state governments, they find it difficult to fund housing development’’.

 

While commenting at the workshop,the President of Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria(REDAN),Rev Ugochukwu Chime noted that state governments too must be carried along in order to boost housing development,he said,

”prior to now state governments have seen land as its own assets,but now with the dwindling oil resources,they are now looking at the fact that land could be an investment,either you leave the land the way it is or you get partners who can invest,build houses and help generate IGR, from ground rents,and other user charges,they now see that there is a mutual beneficial platform between the Federal government,state governments and other developers”

Speaking on the strides being made in the area of low income housing, the Managing Director of Family Homes Fund, Mr Femi Adewole, said

‘’So far so good we have made a lot of progress in terms of creating the supply of homes that are going to be affordable to people who earn low incomes, today we have about 3000 homes at various stages of completion, and by march next year we will have about 21,000 homes under construction.

That will be the largest housing programme so far in the nation, and to support that, we have launched our homes loan assistance programme which is designed to support households who are earning less than a N100,000 per month, to access home ownership’ ’he concluded.

With the support of Family Homes Funds,FMBN,FHA and Fesadeb Media Group,the three day workshop will among other things, help chart a new course towards sustainable housing delivery and address the housing challenge in all states of the federation.

The workshop will be a great avenue for housing stakeholders to connect and network with CEOs of states owned housing agencies, and other housing leaders who will provide guidance, information and inspiration to stakeholders on how they can solve the housing crisis and deliver great services for their clients and communities.

The workshop will give stakeholders the opportunity to know how housing affordability is being tackled by stakeholders in the hosing sector
