Mahama commissions 1,500 housing units

The Affordable Housing project which started in 2013 is expected to produce an average of 5000 housing units when completed.

President John Mahama on Tuesday commissioned a 1,500 housing unit at Ningo in the Greater Accra region as part of his first phase of the affordable housing project.

Speaking at the commissioning, Mr. Mahama said the project is aimed at solving Ghana’s housing challenges.

“We cut the sod a few years ago for work to begin and work has been ongoing. It’s supposed to be the first phase which is 1,500 housing units, the entire project is 5,000 units, and we started with 1,500 units. These are some of the 1,500 units you can see physically. I’m saying physically because there are some people who see but refuse to see and they said these buildings are photoshop. After this visit, I don’t know what else they will do; maybe they will photoshop the building behind me as I stand here but these are real.

“If they like, I can organize an excursion for them to come here and see for themselves what is happening here. There is the Nyameduah Estate at Kpong, we have the Labadi Villas, we are completing the affordable housing units that President Kufuor left for us, State Housing Corporation has finished their part and SSNIT is working on the other part to finish it. All these housing units will be made available to the people of Ghana to solve our housing problems,” he stated.

The project is targeted at low and middle income earners in the country.
