Government to reclaim lands for affordable housing programme – Lands Minister
The Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, has announced that government will reclaim lands across the country for its affordable housing projects.
He made this known when a five-member delegation from the Ministry of Works and Housing led by the Sector Minister, Francis Asenso-Boakye, paid him a visit yesterday.
He stated “We need to source lands for the affordable housing programme in Ghana,”
As part of efforts to reclaim government lands in four major cities in Ghana, particularly in the Greater Accra Region, the Lands Minister announced the formation of a five-member joint committee chaired by his Chief Director, Prof. Patrick Agbsinyale.
The committee has been tasked to develop proposals for areas to be released by the Lands Commission and by extension Lands and Natural Resources Ministry to the Works and Housing Ministry for the government's affordable housing programme.
Ghana’s housing deficit now stands at nearly two million.
