Readers say "Housing for Lecturers" is a good idea

The "Housing for Lecturers" programme has been approved by Pulse readers.

Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria

Last week, Pulse Nigeria reported the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria(FMBN)'s plan to launch a housing scheme for university lecturers in 2016.

“We realised that students also don’t have adequate houses, so there is a programme we are coming up with known as ‘Housing for Lecturers’. We are discussing with ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities), and we are coming up with a pilot programme that is going to be in the six geo-political zones of the country."

Readers were asked if this was a good idea and they voted in favour of the scheme.
