SUSTAINABLE HOUSING SCHEME FOR NIGERIAN WORKERS

Ogun State and Institute for Environment, Research and Development
One of the greatest challenges facing housing delivery in the capitalist oriented economy of the developing world is the appropriation of the few available housing amongst the cadres of income groups. Ogun State of Nigeria’s housing policy is to ensure that all interested people in the State own or have access to decent and sustainable housing at affordable cost. Towards this end, the state government recently (2007/2008) successfully implemented workers and low income housing scheme that ensured that the workers directly own their houses thus breaking the age-long myth that most low income housing end up in the hands of the privileged class.
