Ministry of water resources, works and housing has shown that hundreds of homeowners are storming the ministry to register their interest in purchasing the housing units commissioned by president Mahama at Seglemi in the Greater Accra Region.
Public relations officer of the ministry, Abraham Otabil says the ministry has received millions of applications since the project got commissioned by the president.
“Demand for housing units is on the increase. It’s gone so far and the Ministry on a daily basis receives a number of requests from many prospective buyers. To say the least on a weekly basis, about 7 million people express interest in occupying these facilities and I can tell you that on a daily basis not less than 50 people visit the Ministry in search of these affordable housing projects so it clearly indicates that there is a high demand for the affordable housing project. As we speak, a committee is in place and they will come out with agreed prices on the pricing level and as soon as this is done, it will be made known to the public,” Abraham revealed.
President Mahama cut sod for the project in 2013, when he said the construction was aimed at halving Ghana’s 1.7 million housing deficit by 2016.
