The Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria has called for a special development fund from the Central Bank of Nigeria for state and federal housing corporations to grow the housing sector.

It said the CBN fund would ensure the continued flow of finance for the sector and enhance affordable mass housing provision.

The association is an umbrella organisation for all federal and state housing agencies, housing research institutes and mortgage establishments.

Addressing journalists during the 2020 World Habitat Day celebration in Abuja on Monday, the AHCN President, Dr Victor Onukwugha, commended the recent N200bn CBN mortgage finance loans for the construction of 300,000 intervention homes for low-income earners.
