The anal­y­sis of our data­base has clearly in­di­cated that 4,025 pro­vi­sional of­fer let­ters have been is­sued to ben­e­fi­cia­ries; more than 2,846 have been pro­cessed to Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment Staff Hous­ing Loans Board (FGSHLB) and some pri­mary mort­gage banks for on­ward trans­mis­sion to the Fed­eral Mort­gage Bank of Nige­ria (FMBN).”

Ngige on his part said the dis­tri­bu­tion of keys to fed­eral work­ers showed that the APC ad­min­is­tra­tion is ful­fill­ing its cam­paign prom­ise of pro­vid­ing af­ford­able hous­ing.
