Federal Government Launches 500-Unit Housing Estate in Kano

The Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development has initiated the construction of a 500-unit housing estate in Kano, under the “Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Programme.”
The groundbreaking ceremony took place in Lambu village, Tofa LGA, with Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano and Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, Minister of Housing and Urban Development, presiding over the event.
Governor Yusuf expressed his gratitude to President Tinubu for his visionary leadership in addressing Nigeria’s housing deficit. He emphasized that this initiative will help curb the spread of informal settlements and alleviate the housing shortage in the state.
Arc. Dangiwa elaborated that the Renewed Hope City in Kano will comprise 100 units of 1-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, 300 units of 2-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, and 100 units of 3-bedroom semi-detached bungalows. He noted that this project is a key component of President Tinubu’s broader vision under the Renewed Hope Cities and Estates project, which began with a 3,112-unit development in Karsana, Abuja.
“The first phase aims to deliver 50,000 housing units across Nigeria,” Dangiwa stated. “These cities will feature between 500 and 1,000 housing units per site in each of the six geopolitical zones and the FCT, while the estates will have 250 units per site in the remaining thirty states.”
This ambitious initiative is expected to significantly address housing needs and promote structured urban development throughout Nigeria.
