The Suleja Local Government of Niger State and the state Government are embarking on the construction of 200 housing units to reduce the burden of accommodation among residents of the state.
The housing estate, which is an initiative of the Local Government Council and fully supported by the State Government, sits on 33.4 hectares of land with 371 number of plots with an average size of 450 square meters.
The project is to be undertaken in conjunction with Happy Home Builders Nigeria Limited.
Mr Lukman Komolafe, Managing Director, of the partnering company, said that the project was part of efforts by the state government to address the housing needs of residents of the state.
Komolafe said that the project, which started early in the year, would range from two-bedroom bungalows to two-bedroom compacts.
He said that the houses located along Madalla-Abuja road in Suleja would be completed by the end of the year.
Komolafe said his company was involved in building some housing units for cooperatives and groups in the state as part of the effort towards addressing housing deficit.
”We are known for our excellence and professionalism with a lot of commitment,” he said.
Komolafe said that housing was a crucial basic need of every human being and so needed to be addressed urgently.
