The Affordable Housing Hall of Fame Award has commenced voting activities for its second edition.
The organizer of the award, Housing Development Advocacy Network (HDAN), Africa’s leading housing advocacy organization with interest in promoting safe and decent affordable housing for Nigerians, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.
Executive Director of HDAN, Festus Adebayo, said; ” The Affordable Housing Hall Of Fame Award identifies and honours individuals who have contributed immensely to the development of affordable housing for Nigerians.
“The housing sector is recognized globally as a critical component in world trade and a gateway to the economy of coastal countries, including Nigeria. Nigeria is not the only country to celebrate and honour housing icons, countries like the USA, UK, Singapore, Malaysia had at various times celebrated their heroes of affordable housing.
“Despite the strategic importance of housing, which provides shelter and employment for thousands of Nigerians, individuals’ efforts to develop this sector, thereby boosting the nation’s economy, should be adequately recognised and celebrated.”
He went on to say that the award aims to serve as a catalyst for the sector’s continued development by recognising the most unseen but incredible work being done by stakeholders; to highlight innovations and achievements in the field; and to raise awareness and shine a spotlight on important issues that do not always get the attention they deserve, thereby encouraging further improvement.
According to him, on completion of the voting exercise, winners would be announced in due course.
Adebayo stated that the general public and housing stakeholders can now log on to www.africahousingawards.com to vote deserving individuals for the awards.
