Already, there are indications that eight states may have refused to make the required land available for possible construction of the dwelling units, which designs had already been approved by the Federal Government.
These states, according to a source, included
5. Akwa Ibom
and the FCT.
Refusal by these states, the source told New Telegraph, was hinged on new plan by the Federal Government to request for land for the provision of no fewer than 40 universities and teaching hospitals nationwide with constant power supply.
Sources close to the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing said that the project is a priority programme of the Buhari administration, with details already worked out for immediate implementation.
Said the sources : “The document listed eight states yet to respond to the Federal Government’s request for the provision of land for the building of the houses to include Benue, Niger, Taraba, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Enugu, Lagos, Adamawa and the FCT.” Speaking with New Telegraph by phone, Special Adviser to the Minister on Communication, Mr. Hakeem Bello, denied the claim, saying that it was not true.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
