Plateau State Proposes 844 Housing Units for Workers.

The Plateau State government has approved the construction of about 844 housing units at Zanwra in Miango District of Bassa Local Government Area of the state for workers.

While performing the ground-breaking ceremony, Governor Simon Lalong of the state described the housing unit as “a dividend of peace in the area”.

He added that the project would bring succor to workers by enabling them to have access to modern affordable housing, with a flexible payment system.

He commended the Nigeria Labour Congress -NLC, for prioritizing access to affordable housing for civil servants, through its collaboration with the Federal Housing Authority and the Federal Mortgage Bank -FMB.

“Through the Workers Housing Estate, our civil servants will no longer have cause to worry about owning a house or renting accommodation since there is a mechanism for them to own one under extremely friendly terms,” he had stated.

The governor additionally said that the state government in partnership with FMB has provided home renovation loans worth N2 billion to more than 2, 500 civil servants to help them address the housing challenges.
