Katsina State government will collaborate with private developers to construct houses for the civil servants in the state.
The general manager of the state Housing Authority, Alhaji Salisu Abubakar revealed this to newsmen last weekend.
Abubakar said affordable houses would be built for civil servants and other interested individuals.
He said government resolved to collaborate with the private developers to address shortage of houses faced by the state.
The general manager said currently, the authority was studying about 1000 applications for allocation of houses.
“Government has set aside money in 2016 budget to provide houses for its civil servants and other interested individuals.”
Abubakar further said the authority would soon commence sales of land to the people as part of its effort to provide accommodation.
On the 500 Ahmadu Sardauna Housing Estate constructed by the immediate past administration, the general manager said allocation of the houses was done to favour few individuals.
He said the past administration allocated the houses to their close political associates and other individuals, saying the authority had revoked some of the allocations.
He also lamented the failure by past administration to pay contractors that handled construction of houses in Abuja.
According to him, only 40 percent present administration.
