The Buhari-led federal government has approved the allocation of houses for 22 Super Eagles team members which was promised to them by General Sani Abacha in 1994.
Twenty-eight years after the promise was made by Abacha, Buhari has decided to fulfill it.
The president, represented by the Minister of State for Science, Technology, and Innovation, Mr. Muhammed Abdullahi, stated this at Lafia, Nasarawa State, during the commissioning of the completed homes under the administration’s National Housing Programme initiative.
Abdullahi explained that the completion of the housing projects was the fulfillment of the promise of change made by the Buhari administration.
He praised Nasarawa State, for providing the land for the project, maintaining that the housing projects provided contracts for the Micro, Small, and Medium businessmen and women who provided employment for people through the engagement of skilled and unskilled workers thereby unleashing a value chain of economic activities that have made a positive impact on the lives of ordinary Nigerians.
He said: ‘These are some of the people our country remains committed to moving towards prosperity and away from poverty and we are already reaching them by providing opportunities for employment for those who were hitherto unemployed.’
