Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN), SHELTER AFRIQUE and Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN), have signed a two billion dollar Memorandum of Understanding to provide affordable housing for Nigerians.
The President, REDAN, Surv. Ugochukwu Chime said that one of the covenant of the MoU being signed was an opportunity to get the stock market and regular format that would enable the use of naira instead of dollar. Chime said that they have met with many artisans to see how they could contribute their quota in the delivery of affordable housing, adding that many artisans were currently undergoing training.
He called for the total recapitalisation of the FMBN, adding that over the years FMBN has being limited in their ability to deliver in their mandate because of poor capitalisation.
