Bstan targets 1m houses annually to tackle deficit

Group Managing Director, BSTAN Group, Dr Becky Olubukola

The Managing Director of the Bstan Group, Dr Becky Olubukola, has said the group in collaboration with Distance Home will build one million houses each year to bridge the nation’s housing deficit.

While fielding questions from journalists in Benin, Edo State, Dr Becky said the “one million” housing project would run for 22 years.

She explained that the nation’s population was increasing by the day and that tackling its housing deficit required collective effort just like what Bstan through Metal Shelter Home were doing.

She said, “The 17 million housing deficit as reported by the United Nations (UN) was five years ago, and with the new statistics, the nation has about 22 million deficit.

“That is why for us in Bstan Homes, we are organising the National House Affair because of our passion for the people and for the nation. We came up with a concept that can directly solve the deficit in housing called Metal Shelter Initiative.

“The initiative will solve the housing problem in the country by providing a million houses every year for the next 22 years.
