UN-Backed NGO Announces Plan to Build 400,000 Homes in Nigeria

This initiative aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9) and sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11). The project aims to address Nigeria’s housing deficit and contribute to the nation’s socio-economic development.

A ray of hope for Nigerians struggling with a housing shortage emerged on Saturday as a United Nations-supported NGO, the Global Centre For Empowerment And Care For Life Challenges (GECLC), announced an ambitious plan to construct 400,000 housing units across the country.

According to Dr. Vincent Ejikeme Agbo, Chairman and Chief Executive of GECLC, the project will be implemented in two phases, with each of Nigeria’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) receiving 10,000 housing units.

This large-scale project is set to begin in Nigeria and then expand to other African nations, with the potential to significantly improve living conditions and stimulate economic growth across the continent.
