To this effect, we took concrete steps to stengthen the Imo State Housing Corporation, to enable it deliver on this mandate.
“We mapped out a comprehensive plan of providing affordable housing to both the middle and low income earners in the State. Part of the strategy involved partnership arrangements with primary mortgage institutions such as Federal Mortgage Bank, the Family Homes Funds and other reputable private sector investors. Our target is to provide 5000 affordable homes by the year 2023. In addition, we are planning for a Social Housing Initiative which together would create about 25,000 jobs in the next four years.”
