THE Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Dangiwa has said the federal government will deliver affordable housing to Nigerians by breaking systemic barriers.
Speaking at a dinner organised in his honour by Housing Development Advocacy Network (HDAN) in Abuja on Saturday, Dangiwa stated that all Nigerians deserved access to decent, quality and affordable housing.
He said that as housing industry stakeholders, it was up to them in their various capacities to do things differently and collectively work towards breaking all the systemic barriers.
The minister said, “I have been meeting with senior staff and heads of agencies under the ministry with a view to unveiling a Strategic Housing and Urban Development Blueprint, which will contain details of our priorities, initiatives, reforms, and plans.”
He stated that the responsibility of the ministry was to create an enabling environment that would encourage private sector investment and formulate policies that would empower agencies under his supervision to perform their functions optimally.
As an environment expert, Dangiwa said he understood all the challenges in the sector, adding that he was determined to fix them, leveraging on the support, expertise and knowledge of industry stakeholders.
The stakeholders in the sector pledged their support to the minister.
