Group inaugurates 500-unit housing estate for women in Abuja


The Women Housing Plan Initiative has inaugurated a 500-unit housing estate in Zuba area of the Federal Capital Territory to empower women and enable them to have houses of their own in Abuja.

The project tagged, ‘Unity Hills Residence: City within a city,’ consists of 500 units of plots sitting on 30 hectares of land with land use approval from the Federal Capital Development Authority.

Speaking during the ground-breaking ceremony of the project, the Chairperson of WHPI, Hajia Binta Ibrahim, described the housing initiative for women as the first of its kind in the country.

She explained that the subscribers would enjoy easy payment terms, adding that the project was meant to complement the government’s efforts at providing housing for all by 2020.

Ibrahim called for support from the government, noting that her organisation could not achieve the feat without assistance.

She said, “The Women Housing Plan Initiative is a shelter initiative, which has the primary objective of empowering women and families to enable them to own their own houses through easy terms financing. It is a land acquisition programme through a special package for women.

“It is also meant to support the federal and state governments’ efforts towards housing for all by the year 2020, in line with the sustainable development goals.”

The WHPI initiator urged women to key into the opportunity, adding that they would not regret doing that.

Ibrahim added, “The land is surrounded by beautiful hills, serene environment, and facilities like 24-hours security, good road network, paved walkways, electricity, water, street lights, recreation area, community worship centres, school, police post and shopping mall, would be provided.” Punch
