10th Abuja Housing Show Programme Brochure

The need exists for effective mortgage system with indigenous technical inputs and private participation. There are serious barriers to housing provision in Nigeria and there is the need for proper amendment of the laws and the constitution in this regards. Commercial banks’ lending is unaffordable. The Land Use Act of 1978 needs to be repealed.
