FG launches construction of 500 housing units in Kano

The federal government, through the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, has initiated the construction of a 500-unit housing estate in Kano as part of the “Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Programme.”

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano presided over the groundbreaking ceremony alongside Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, Minister of Housing and Urban Development, in Lambu village, Tofa LGA.

Governor Yusuf thanked President Tinubu for his visionary leadership in addressing Nigeria’s housing deficit.  He noted that the initiative will help curb the spread of informal settlements and reduce the housing shortage in the state.

Arc. Dangiwa explained that the Renewed Hope City in Kano will include 100 units of 1-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, 300 units of 2-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, and 100 units of 3-bedroom semi-detached bungalows.

He said the project was part of President Tinubu’s broader vision under the Renewed Hope Cities and Estates project, which began with a 3,112-unit project in Karsana, Abuja.

He said the first phase aims to deliver 50,000 housing units across Nigeria.

“The cities will have between 500 – 1,000 housing units per site in each of the six geopolitical zones and the FCT, while the estates will have 250 units per site in the remaining thirty states,” Dangiwa said.
