Pioneer civil society in the Nigerian housing industry, Housing Development Advocacy Network HDAN has called on all electorates in Bayelsa, Kogi, and Imo states respectively, who would be voting in the forth-coming governorship elections set to be held on Saturday, November 11, 2023, to vote candidates who place housing as a priority in their manifesto.
According to HDAN, this choice of candidates would be beneficial to the housing needs of the people.
This was disclosed in a statement released on Friday by Executive Director Festus Adebayo in Abuja.
Adebayo also tasked politicians to do more on housing and make it part of their constituency’s projects.
“There’s no better time for electorates to demand for housing, than when politicians are seeking for their votes.
“There’s no better time to demand for their rights than when these politicians are campaigning to seek for their votes.”
He further stated that housing is key to economic development and that with housing, more employment opportunities can be created for the youths.
While calling on the legislative, and the Nigerian government to do more on housing, Adebayo noted that the importance of housing cannot be overemphasized in boosting the development of the nation.
