If this beautiful house in Tamale is replicated all over the country, it will be a dream come true for many people who want to become homeowners but cannot afford the very expensive properties on the market which are usually sold in dollars.
Below are some comments from netizens who reacted to the video.
Nii Lante said:
So why can't this be the standard for affordable homes in the north with little or no changes depending on the persons taste and style? Because these mud houses I see are just uncomfortable
Kaptin added that:
50K for Accra you just go take rent
Kojo Wills opined:
A co-operative union can build this and government building on its own lands will be charging Ghs250,000 for similar. This Ghana, unless we help ourselves!
Kweku success asked:
Any contacts please, I'm an immigration officer working close to Sunyani and will like to get in touch.
Many have commended the credit union for doing such a good job and wish that the government and other agencies will do similar projects to benefit the masses.
