1. National Acceptability

A national housing program must have national acceptability in terms of diversity of design in response to cultural and climatic diversities.

We have finalized and settled on 6 (six) designs, classified into 2 (two) broad sets of designs: Bungalows in the North and Blocks of flats in the South. All of these were achieved by local architects in the ministry with a voluntary contribution from outside the ministry, but with all of it totally home grown.

2. Standardization of Design and Input

The next step is to standardize these designs, windows and fittings and all of these have been done - again by local capacity.

3. Efficiency of Construction

The third step is to build industrially and reduce construction time. We are using local capacity to leverage international capacity to achieve this.

4. Local Content

We have resolved to use only the following Made in Nigeria items:

1. Doors

2. Windows

3. Tiles

4. Ceilings

5. Plumbing accessories

6. Cables

7. Paint

8. Ironmongery
