Arch. Ahmed Dangiwa

The Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Ahmed Dangiwa, has announced that the Federal Government has delivered 7,000 housing units across seven states to accommodate people displaced by banditry and other violent incidents.

This was revealed during a meeting with a delegation from the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) in his office, according to a statement published on the ministry’s website.

Minister Dangiwa emphasized that this initiative is a testament to the government’s commitment to building resilience and restoring stability in regions affected by violence and insecurity.

The statement highlighted that the 7,000 housing units are a component of the Pulaaku Initiative, a significant resettlement program addressing the underlying issues of farmer-herder conflicts and promoting national unity in seven states affected by banditry and violence. President Bola Tinubu recently named Dangiwa as the Chairman of the Steering Committee to oversee this initiative.
