The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola said that the ministry would soon commence the sale of housing units built under the National Housing Programme nationwide.
Fashola disclosed this during a stakeholders’ engagement forum organised by the Lagos State Real Estate Transactions Department with the theme: “Lagos Real Estate: Achieving 21st Century Compliance”
According to him, sales of the houses will be done through an online subscription to allow transparency and reduce human interference to the barest in the allocation process.
Fashola, who was represented by Sarah Alawode, Controller, Federal Ministry of Housing, said housing, apart from being one of the major needs of a man, holds great potential for the economic well being of Lagos State and Nigeria at large.
“It therefore behoves on us all to ensure that the art and practice of housing delivery in all ramifications are advanced for the benefit of the country and teeming population seeking shelter on a daily basis,” he said.
The minister said that more states need to play a more active role to ensure a better experience for citizens in the area of land and security of land transaction, thereby attracting investment.
