Parliamentarians Visit Government Housing Project

Members of the Select Committee on Works and Housing of Parliament paid a one-day working visit to the Government of Ghana Housing Project in Tema for the Navy.
The project is part of Government’s effort to address the accommodation challenge of personnel of the Ghana Navy and the visit afforded Members of the Select Committee the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the extent of work done and to advice Government accordingly.
The Housing Project for the Navy is a Government of Ghana funded project, pre-financed by Amandi Holding Limited, an Israeli Construction Firm and contractors for the project at the cost of 101 Million Ghana Cedis. The project, which started in 2014, is expected to be completed in August 2017.
The project comprises of 368 housing units with a recreational area as well as water reservoir to ensure constant flow of water.
Briefing the media after the inspection, Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Nana Amoako, (MP -Upper Denkyira East) expressed satisfaction about the extent and quality of work done and called for more private/public partnership in the housing sector to tackle the about 1.7 million housing deficit in the country.
The Chairman also stressed the importance of mortgages and provision of soft loans as a sure means of addressing the accommodation challenge in the country.
He finally stated that, Government would consider providing solar panels to these facilities to cut down on over dependence of the national grid.
Alhaji Yahaya Yakubu, Director of Housing at the Ministry of Works and Housing, said government had provided similar accommodation facility to personnel of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) about two years ago.
