Engineer Sule appreciated the FMBN for partnering with the Family Homes Fund, while also specifically thanking President Muhammadu Buhari, for initiating the idea, aimed at ensuring that less privileged members of the society acquire homes, towards addressing challenges of housing deficits in the country.

The governor noted that for a state like Nasarawa, opportunities for 20, 000 employment as stated by the Managing Director of the Family Homes Fund, is not a small achievement.

“If we can have 20, 000 of our graduates who are roaming the streets of Nasarawa State, we are going to create a huge employment. This is one of my major motivation,” he stated.

Engineer Sule added that his administration is aware that, with the high cost building in the Federal Capital Territory, Nasarawa State remains a frontline state when it comes to land acquisition.

The governor said that informed the decision to push the state forward, to see what will come to the state for the benefit of all the partners.

Engineer Sule assured that his administration will strictly monitor the project, towards ensuring that it is executed according to the terms of the agreement.

Also speaking, Managing Director of the Family Homes Fund, Femi Adewole, described the signing of the agreement as a landmark event, with his firm committing N6bn in executing the project.

Adewole explained that the project will among others, construct 2000 homes, including associated financing required for the people to buy their homes.

He added that the project will also expected to create at least, 100, 000 jobs, both direct and indirect, at the construction sites, as well as through the multiplier effect in the downstream.

Adewole equally assured that products to be used in the construction will be locally sourced.

He described the agreement signing, which is also a pilot project, as a novel approach to housing supply, by bringing all three critical elements of the housing value chain together under one roof.

“This will put an end to the failure bedeviling housing projects in Nigeria. This is a solution that will not only bring a lot of reputation to Nasarawa State, but we expect using this success in Nasarawa, to replicate across many states,” he said.

Earlier, Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank, Arch. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, said the tripartite agreement will elevate the level of collaboration and partnership with the bank and Nasarawa State.

The FCMB MD, who was represented at the event by Oladapo Fakeye, Group Head Strategy, explained that the bank manages the Federal Housing Fund, created for all workers across the country both in public, private service and even the self-employed, to contribute just 2.5 percent of their monthly salary, to benefit from wide range of products, targeted at provision of housing or improving housing for Nigerian workers.
