BY ANKELI EMMANUEL, Sokoto
Sokoto State government said it will construct 1000 units of one-bed room houses for low income earners in the state.
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal stated this yesterday when he received the Minister of State for Power, Works and Housing, Malam Mustapha Baba Shehure who paid a courtesy visit to Government House, Sokoto.
According to Tambuwal, the gesture will not only improve the welfare of the people but also help in providing opportunity for more citizens to own houses.
He said his administration has completed 500 housing units inherited from the last administration and was commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari when he visited Sokoto in November 2016.
“We hope to complete another 500 housing units at Gidan Man Ada towards the end of this year. Our aim is to ensure that civil servants and other interested individuals who can afford these houses get them and utilize them for the purposes they were meant for.
“We are conscious of the fact that more and more people people need houses and as government, we will do our best to meet these needs,” the governor added.
Tambuwal commended the Federal Government for the national housing projects embarked upon by the ministry and presently ongoing across the country.
