The construction of affordable mass housing units for local government workers in Plateau State will commence in the first quarter of 2022.

Project Coordinator and Chief Executive Officer of MHUNULG Housing Ltd, Comrade Richard Gbawuan, disclosed this while receiving the technical report on the assessment of 397 building firms who bidded for the project.

According to Gbawuan, the submission of the technical report was all that was needed for the construction to commence, saying, “Now that the report has been received, the construction will commence any moment from now.”

He added: “The technical work was meant to help us assess the over 500 contractors who bidded for the projects. We needed to know their individual capacity and qualifications for the jobs so as to avoid recruiting quacks to handle the constructions.”

Earlier, the Group Managing Director of Ash Frontiers Ltd, Ashen Musa Jacob, while submitting the technical report noted that the report contained the profile of each firm screened for the jobs as well as recommendations that will guide the estate firm in awarding the contract.

Jacob said the contractors recommended in the report are those considered to have the required capacity to be awarded the contract.

A number of 370 houses will be constructed in each of the 17 local governments of the state for the local government staff, amounting to a total of 6,290 units. The construction is expected to take off simultaneously, be completed in six months and handed over to the beneficiaries.

The mass housing scheme, according to Gbawuan, is expected to bridge the housing deficit in Plateau state.
