The Chairman, implementation committee of the Federal Government Integrated Staff Housing programme (FISH) Yemi Adelakun has said the project requires N20bn to deliver the required number of houses.
He said about 30, 000 civil servants had registered to own their houses since the programme began in 2014, adding that the project was funded through the Federal Government Staff Housing Loans Board (FGSHLB), in collaboration with the Nigerian Pension Commission, SURE-P, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the offices of the minister of finance and director general, budget office.
The chairman added that equity financing was also needed to fund the programme, hence it had started consultations with Shelter Afrique, an international organisation on housing matters.
