Gombe State government, in partnership with Family Homes Fund (FHF) under the affordable housing scheme, is set to 1,000 affordable housing units in the state for low-income earners to own their own homes.
To this effect, the state governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, at the weekend, met with the managing director and CEO of FHF, Femi Adewole, who visited him at the Gombe Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja.
Family Homes Fund is an initiative of the federal government aimed at facilitating affordable housing delivery by entering into specific partnerships with supportive State Governments, developers and International partners/agencies that can provide technical support and financing for project implementation.
The FHF MD who confirmed to Governor Yahaya that Gombe State has met all the necessary requirements for the implementation of the scheme in the state noted that the FHF will soon release funds required to enable commencement of the project.
He added that his agency and Governor Yahaya would agree on a date for the ground breaking ceremony that will signal the commencement of the construction of the 1000 housing units by the Inuwa-led administration in Gombe State.
The meeting had in attendance the state commissioner for finance and economic development, Muhammad Gambo Magaji.
