Allottees who are yet to complete payment for housing units and plots of land allocated to them by the Federal Housing Authority, FHA have been given 21 days effective Saturday, November 28, 2020 to do so.
In a public notice signed by the Management of the Authority, it has been “observed with dismay the huge amounts owed by various Allottees… Some of these debts cut across cadres of retired staff and the general public, and have been owed for many years, contrary to agreed repayment plans and initial terms of allocation”.
The defaulting allottees have been provided with the account of the Authority with the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN to make the payments. “Failure to comply with this notice will lead the Authority to publish the names of debtors in national newspapers and proceed to take all necessary steps to revoke the affected housing units and land which will be subsequently reallocted to interested members of the general public”.
FHA has several housing estates across the country including in Karu, Lugbe, Kubwa and Gwarinpa in the Federal Capital Territory and FESTAC in Lagos State among others. Most of these estates are however in a state of disrepair with very dilapidated road network due to poor maintenance over the years. New housing projects are also underway across the country by the Federal Government.
It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari in August this year appointed Senator Gbenga Ashafa as new Managing Director of the Federal Housing Authority along with Abdulmumin Jibrin as Executive Director Business Development.
