Gombe Gets FG's 250-Units Renewed Hope Housing Estate 

 

…..... Project, a solution to housing deficit in the State - Gov Inuwa 
 

Gombe State, North Eastern Nigeria is among the beneficiaries of the first phase of the Renewed Hope Housing Project of the federal government, as the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development formally launched a 250 units housing estate in the state. 

 

The Executive Governor of Gombe State, Alhaji Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya performed the official ground-breaking for the housing estate along side the Minister and Minister of State, Housing and Urban Development,  Arc Ahmed Musa Dangiwa and Abdullahi Tijjani Gwarzo respectively. 
 

Minister Dangiwa stated that the groundbreaking was part of the Nationwide Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Programme, which His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR officially flagged-off in February 2024, with the groundbreaking for a 3,112-housing unit in Karsana, Abuja.

 

In his remarks, Arc. Dangiwa explained that the Renewed Hope City in Gombe State will constitute 50 units of 1-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, 150 units of 2-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, and 50 units of 3-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, all designed organically to allow for future expansion as the income of beneficiaries increases, and in a way that makes it easy and affordable for people to off-take.
 

He emphasized the need for the developers Messrs. Zurfat Investments Limited, Simba Synergy Limited, Baba Alhaji Nigeria Limited and Messrs Absuh Nigeria Limited to adhere strictly to quality standards and specifications, urging them also to complete the work within the three months timeline to enable Gombe indigenes purchase and move in.

 

The Minister listed out the various purchase options for buyers in order to make the home ownership accessible, which includes single-digit mortgage loans that beneficiaries can repay over 30-years, rent-to-own provided by the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, and Outright Purchase options, for those who can afford to pay upfront. 

 

Dangiwa mentioned that the Phase One aims to deliver 50,000 housing units across Nigeria. The cities are to have between 500 - 1,000 housing units per site in one location, in each of the six geopolitical zones in the country and the FCT, while the estates will have 250 units per site in the remaining thirty (30) States. 

 

On the economic importance of the housing construction, he said “ With this housing programme, we plan to unlock the massive potential of housing development to create jobs, uplift lives and boost economic development”

 

He also informed that Renewed Hope Estates are cited in 12 States while the Renewed Hope Cities are cited in 3 States. The estates are in Katsina, Yobe, Gombe, Abia, Nasarawa, Benue, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Sokoto, Oyo, and Osun States, while the Cities are in Abuja, Kano, and Lagos. 

 

Accordingly, he also stated " In total, we are breaking ground for 1,500 housing units across five States in Northern Nigeria, on this first leg of the exercise"

 

Dangiwa further reiterated the commitment of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to ensuring Nigerians own decent, and affordable homes, saying that funding for the projects comes from the N50 billion 2023 Supplementary Budget of the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development

 

He also assured that States which have not been covered under the 2023 Supplementary Budget will be included in the Ministry’s 2024 Budget.

 

 “ I therefore urge all State Governments yet to provide land for these projects to do so as we work to kick-start the next round”, he added.

 

The Minister appreciated Governor Inuwa Yahaya for providing land at no cost for the project, stating that it has significantly reduced the overall cost of the housing units.

 

According to him, “This singular action has helped  to reduce as much as 30% of the cost of the units in this Estate for the benefit of potential homeowners, this is a dividend of responsible governance and I applaud Your Excellency for this”.

 

Accordingly, Dangiwa  thanked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for providing the vision and the political will to make a difference in terms of delivering decent and quality housing to Nigerians. 

 

“The Groundbreaking ceremonies for these projects demonstrate that Mr. President and indeed the Federal government of Nigeria is committed to fulfilling its promises and responsibilities to all Nigerians”, he said.

 

In his remarks, Gombe State Governor, Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya, applauded the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the Renewed Hope Housing Agenda, and also for the commitment to make the houses affordable.

 

Governor Yahaya further urged the people of Gombe State to see the groundbreaking as a solution to housing problem in the state
