Housing Minister Launches Renewed Hope Housing Delivery Portal

The Honourable Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa has launched the Renewed Hope Housing Online Portal, a platform to streamline the process for the marketing and sale of houses being built under the Renewed Hope Cities and Estate Programme.

Unveiling the portal, Dangiwa said, the Online Platform is a fulfilment of promise to break all the barriers to homeownership for Nigerians, and also to facilitate and promote the creation of technology systems and private sector-led initiatives that will make it simpler, easier, and more convenient for Nigerians to own their homes.

The Minister said, the innovative platform is groundbreaking,. It provides an online, transparent, easy-to-use, integrated web-based application for the sale of homes under the Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Programme of the Ministry, which was launched by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu earlier this year.

He further said that the platform has many benefits for homebuyers. It has a user-friendly interface to ensure that the journey to homeownership is smooth and straightforward. It ensures a seamless and secure registration process with identity verification, enabling potential homeowners to efficiently search for properties using various filters, ensuring they find homes that meet their specific needs.

Similarly, he explained that the platform also integrates features that offer flexible payment options, including both one-time payments and installment plans, catering to different financial situations. It also provides easy access to mortgage plans, allowing homebuyers to check their eligibility and apply from anywhere in the world.

” The platform supports equity contributions for mortgages, streamlining financial planning for buyers. Integrated features like credit checks and bank statement generation simplify the application process. Buyers can also apply for the release of up to 25% of their RSA balance for additional financial support” he stated

He also described the online platform as a key part of the partnership of the MoU signed in December 2023 with a consortium of developers led by Continental Civil to deliver 100,000 housing units nationwide.

Acknowledging the consortium of developers for their ingenuity, Dangiwa said that, Nations grow when the private sector is properly engaged. He encouraged those who have real value to add to their efforts to deliver the Renewed Hope Vision for Housing of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

” The housing platform will also provide the necessary data that we need to achieve the ministry’s goal of implementing a Demand-Driven Strategy for Housing by helping us to gauge the nature of housing needs for different locations and demographics nationwide”  he added.

He also explained  that the online platform was not the first built by the Ministry, adding  that the ministry is supporting the mainstreaming of a better, carefully designed, more efficient, futuristic housing platform that reflects the necessary improvements from previous efforts towards ensuring achieving the President’s Renewed Hope Agenda for easy access to homeownership for Nigerians, without financial cost to the ministry.

He explained also that the ministry facilitates the building of homes that people can afford in locations where they are needed so that they don’t end up with houses that are fully built but abandoned.

Currently , there are 12 locations for Renewed Hope Estates and three (3) locations for Renewed Hope Cities across the country.

The Estates are sited in Yobe, Gombe, Ebonyi, Abia, Nasarawa, Benue, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Katsina, Sokoto, Oyo and Osun, while  the Cities are in Abuja, Kano and Lagos.

Dangiwa called on all Nigerians to take advantage of the platform to apply for the houses under the Renewed Hope Cities and Estates Programme. ” With the platform, you do not need to know anybody, he emphasized
