Renewed Hope Housing: FG Cautions Contractors, Developers Against Sub-Standard Work


Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc Ahmed Musa Dangiwa has declared that the Renewed Hope Housing Agenda of President Bola Tinubu would not tolerate abandoned work.

Dangiwa warned that any contractor that collects government’s money for housing project must do the work, emphasising that the Ministry was desperate to give Nigerians value for money.

The minister sounded this warning on Saturday, June 29th, 2024 in Warri, Delta State, during the foundation laying of 250 Renewed Hope Housing Estate for the State.

Similarly, the minister charged the developers to adhere to the timeline and finish within the stipulated three-month timeline so that the process for indigenes to purchase the houses and move in can begin.

Delta State is the ninth state in the series so far to have the groundbreaking among the thirteenth states scheduled under Phase One of the Renewed Hope Housing Project, across the nation.

The Federal Government intends to deliver 50,000 houses under Phase One, and the funding comes from the N50 Billion 2023 Supplementary budget; the remaining States not captured under the supplementary budget would be covered under the 2024 budget of the Ministry, if they provided the land at no cost to ease affordability.

“I want to charge the developers of all the Renewed Hope Cities and Estates across the states to ensure that they build according to specifications. I want to emphasise in very strong terms that we will not tolerate substandard work from any developer, and we will explore all necessary legal means, including the EFCC, to ensure that they deliver as per the contract. If you collect government money, you must do the work,” he said.

Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori who was represented at the groundbreaking event by his deputy, Sir Monday Onyeme said, “Delta State is happy to partner with the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development in the Renewed Hope Housing Programme”.

Governor Oborevwori disclosed that the state government had granted waiver on Certificate of Occupancy and payment of ground rent to enhance affordability of the houses to the citizens.
