This was disclosed by the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashiola, at the public launch of the Web portal designed for the sale of the completed mass housing project built by the Ministry across the states of the federation.
The official launch of the portal, https://nhp.worksandhousing.gov.ng which took place at the Conference Room of the Ministry in Mabushi, Abuja, throws open the door for Nigerians to apply online to buy the available 5,000 plus housing units, ranging from 1, 2 to 3 bedroom bungalows and blocks of flats in any location of their choice.
What the Minister is saying
The Minister stated that “the initiative which started with a survey in 2015, was also instrumental to the implementation of the Federal Government’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP)”.
“This is the first time we have a platform that every Nigerian has access to. This provides an opportunity for all Nigerians to apply and ensure a fair process of allocation.
“We introduced the online portal from which the national housing programme will be offered to members of the public. The forms are online and allow for more openness, limit human interventions, and hold us more accountable. The endgame is an economic objective,”
“Applicants can also take a virtual tour of the property they are interested in. They can apply and register with email and phone numbers. Upon verification, they can complete their application.
“We have included the abridged drawings of each estate. When an allocation is booked on the online portal, it will show that it is no longer available. This way we avoid duplicity. The backend online staff on this.
“We have different house types which are the result of a survey we undertook. There are 1,2,3 bedroom semi-detached bungalows. It is not only the house but it also has adjoining lands. There is also 1,2,3 bedrooms in the condominium.
“We will soon start the official handover and tape cutting as the subscribers come in. We have maintenance and facilities managers in all the estates.
