The first 100 houses under the Public Private Partnership which was initiated by Kaduna state Gov. Nasiru El-Rufa’i have been completed.
The houses are built for low income earners in the state. The project was inaugurated by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo under the ”Affordable Housing Scheme” on Jan. 12, 2016 in Kaduna.
“We have made provision that is highly individualistic, with each of the flats having separate water tank, soak away and a fire wall in case of inferno, so that it cannot affect the next flat,” Olaitan Lanre, a representative of Rapida Construction Limited says. Rapida Construction is also working on the project.
Lanre explained also that the flats had a small court yard at the back for outdoor activities.
“We are to build about a thousand houses but now we have about 100 on ground and the governor was here to see the state of work by himself.”
A total of 2,000 houses are to be provided under the Scheme.
