Paradigm Leadership Support Initiative (PLSI), a civic organisation fostering public accountability in Nigeria, has stressed the need for low-income earners in Delta, Kano, Ogun, Kaduna, and Nasarawa States to acquire 1,432 homes completed but unsold.

PLSI also called on the management of Family Homes Funds Limited (FHFL) to improve its efficiency and effectiveness in providing affordable/social homes to Nigerians.

Olusegun Elemo, Executive Director, PLSI, made the call in Abuja on Thursday while presenting findings from the analysis of the performance audit report on the management of resources for the provision of affordable/social homes for low-income earners in Nigeria by Family Homes Funds Limited (2018-2020).

“We have analysed the performance audit report on the management of resources for the provision of affordable/social homes for low-income earners in Nigeria conducted by the auditor-general for the federation and we have highlighted key challenges impeding acquisition of 1,432 homes built in five states.”

“These challenges include the absence of need assessment by the Family Homes Funds Limited, constraint with accessing completed homes due to lack of infrastructure and insufficient awareness creation for homes built among others.

“PLSI will support the Family Homes Funds Limited in mobilizing buyers/off-takers within the target group of low-income earners to boost acquisition of homes built in Delta, Kano, Ogun, Kaduna, and Nasarawa States,” he said.
