Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, on Friday, performed the groundbreaking for the construction of 500 houses at Rafin Mallam and Yola in Ungogo Local Government Area of the state.

Mr Ganduje, represented by his Deputy, Dr Nasiru Gawuna, said that the project would assist in reducing housing deficit in the state.

He said that the 500 houses would be the first phase, adding that 3,500 of the housing units would be constructed in Teachers’ Reserved Area, TRA.

According to him, this is part of his administration’s efforts to provide affordable houses to the citizens, with the support of the Federal Government.

“Our administration is committed to provision of qualitative infrastructure, and in our bid to create an enabling environment, we have directed the Ministry of Environment to provide seedlings for planting of trees at the site.

“These houses are meant for teachers, civil servants and members of the public in general,’’ he said.

Mr Ganduje also said that the project would boost the economy through job creation for the teeming unemployed youth in the state.

He urged the contractors handling the project to patronise the markets in the state while purchasing the needed materials.

The governor also appealed to the contractors to ensure timely completion of the project in accordance with the agreement.
