Thanks to Governor Nyesom Ezebunwo Wikes‘ liberal housing policy, Rivers state can now become a haven for private investors.
Barr. Emma Okah, the Rivers State Commissioner of Housing, is advising private investors to take advantage of the new policy.
“Rivers State Government plans to undertake massive housing development for the different economic levels of residents. As a caring Government, we will create opportunities for private investors to take advantage of this prospect.”
The commissioner stated that the new policy will enable easy access to lands in order for real estate investors to establish new and well-planed mega cities that are affordable.
“Such towns would also have modern facilities like water, electricity, internet facilities etc. Indeed speed and quality is needed to meet the ever increasing demand for houses across the state and government cannot achieve the need to transfer more houses to the public alone.”
He also said that this partnership between the state and private investors will go a long way in tackling the housing needs of the state, adding that it would provide employment for residents.
