Former president calls for ‘indigenous Nigerian housing’, more
The former president of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV) is making major demands for Nigeria's real estate sector.
According to him, the government needs to make ‘indigenous Nigerian housing’ possible and reduce the cost of housing construction for the average Nigeria.
“There should be tailor-made Nigeria housing scheme, as a country we have not re-engineered ourselves our taste to having indigenous housing. In the United States for instance, most houses are built with wood and other materials but here we are stuck with brick and mortar. We can’t possibly bridge the housing gap if there is no deliberate policy shift in design and construction method including our taste.”
He went on to call for the protection of the rights of land buyers.
