The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development has commenced a review process of conditions and procedures for sales of houses under the National Housing Programme.
This comes two months after the ministry revoked provisional letters of allocation offered to subscribers of the National Housing Programme.
The ministry, claiming to review the conditions and procedures of sales of the houses, said the affected subscribers include beneficiaries of the programme from the first batch to the 14th batch.
But in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works and Housing, Mahmud Mamman on Thursday, the ministry said the review process is part of the programme for the new sales of houses and interested applicants are to obtain Expression of Interest Forms and called on interested Nigerians both home and abroad to apply.
According to the statement, interested applicants who were given a provisional offer of allocation between 2022 and 2023 are free to reapply this time.
It stated, “Interested subscribers who were offered a provisional offer of allocation that elapsed between 10th March 2022 and 18th October 2023 are free to reapply by completing the Expression of Interest Form.”
For Nigerians in the diaspora, it stated that they can get the Expression of Interest form from the office of the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission.
It stated, “All interested subscribers are to obtain their Expression of Interest Forms from the office of the Federal Controllers of Housing and Urban Development in the 36 states of the Federal and the FCT at no cost.”
“However, Nigerians in the diaspora who are interested in subscribing to the houses are to obtain their Expression of Interest Forms from the office of the Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission.”
However, the statement does not contain any deadline for the collection or submission of the Expression of Interest Form.
When contacted by our correspondent for further details, the Special Adviser to the Housing Minister on media, Mark Chieshe, asked for more time to provide time but was yet to do so, as at the time of filing this report.
