The Nigeria Army’s wholly owned Post-Service Housing Development Limited (PHDL) says is now ready to partner with the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in the provision of affordable housing space for sporting media professionals.
This was disclosed when the leadership of SWAN in FCT visited the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of PHDL Major General TT Numbere in his office.
The SWAN Chairman, Comrade Ndubueze Chidoka, who led the SWAN delegation informed the MD/CEO that the visit was to secure the partnership of PHDL to build a SWAN Smart City that members can subscribe to.
He explained that the time has come when sports writers should own their place of abode.
Comrade Chidoka also assured of the association’s readiness to partner with PHDL in areas of mutually beneficial interest.
Major General Numbere in his reaction expressed PHDL’s readiness to partner individuals and organisations for the provision of affordable housing for all Nigerians.
He also revealed their services include provision of land space and building of all kinds for willing investors.
He said, “Basically, we deal on mass housing. Our houses are about the cheapest you can get across the country.
“We have been in the business of providing affordable houses to Nigerian Army personnel and the general public since 1996 !and only recently ventured into luxury estate in the FCT.
“We have the capacity to build but if anyone wants to build, we can offer affordable land in different cities across the country. Our estates are open to all.”
