Pmnews.ng recalls that it had previously reported the announcement by the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development three months ago, where the Federal Government introduced the Renewed Hope Cities and Estate Programme.

The federal government had stated that 1,000 housing units would be constructed in the 36 States and 4,000 units in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
