Women wing call on Governor Ambode to provide affordable housing

The women wing of the Nasrul-lahi-l-Fatih Society (NASFAT) are urging the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to provide affordable housing for Lagosians.

While on a visit to The Nation as part of its activities for the 16th Women’s Week yesterday, NASFAT National Women Affairs Secretary, Alhaja Samiat Mumuni, advocated for affordable housing for low income earners.

“How many civil servants can afford buying a home as much as N13 million? Housing scheme should not be for first class or middle class alone, the lower cadre  should be the utmost beneficiaries like what we had during the Lateef Jakande era.”

Despite this, she acknowledged the Governor's efforts especially his alignment project in the ministries, where she urged him to motivate the staff by providing better welfare.

She also advised him to secure the civil service and prevent leakages as this is the way ministries can grow.

Asides affordable housing, she also spoke on the high rate of unemployment.

“The federal government should provide enabling environment for existing companies to generate more employment. The idea of companies relocating to neighbouring countries should be discouraged. Mr. President should formulate policy that brings in more investors and not the one that will drive investors away.”
