2,000 affordable housing units dubbed the Appolonia City Housing Project are set to be constructed in Accra Ghana. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo broke ground for the commencement of the mega project.
This initiative which will help reduce the country’s housing deficit is in line with government’s vision of using appropriate mix of public policy and public-private investments so as to deliver quality, affordable social housing and private housing solutions that meet the needs and financial capacity of all citizens.
“With a housing deficit over some 1.7 million units, the Appolonia City Project is one of the several initiatives that will be introduced along the housing value chain to achieve a cost effective, efficient and sustainable housing sector,” the President disclosed.
He added that during this month, the fist 100 houses will be on course and the contractors are expected to create employment to the locals through the project.
“Contractors working on the building projects should employ and provide training skills to members of the community. This is a laudable initiative, a model I would encourage others to emulate,” the President said.
