Putting in place deliberate policies for affordable housing will bridge the housing deficit currently facing Nigeria.
This is the opinion of guests on NTA’s “Good Morning Nigeria”, in a discussion on how to make housing more affordable for Nigerians.
The issue of affordable housing cannot be over emphasized particularly in urban cities where the cost of living is relatively on the high side.
The discussants agree that the performance of the housing industry is key to promoting and guaranteeing acceptable living standards.
This, guests say, has remained largely an unfulfilled dream to a vast majority of Nigerians.
Discussants say among other measures to ensure the provision of adequate housing, proper land administration and effective housing systems stand out.
Stricter laws regulating the housing rental markets were also advocated.
