FG seeks China’s support on housing

The Federal Governm2016_09_22_22184ent is seeking partnership with the Chinese government to build housing estates for at least 87,000 federal civil ser­vants across Nigeria.

The Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, said the government would collaborate with China for a sin­gle digit interest rate mortgage that civil servants can pay.

She made the disclosure on Saturday at a meeting with the Chairman of the China-Africa Development Fund in Abuja,

The Head of Service also ex­plained the reasons behind government’s decision to col­laborate with the Chinese gov­ernment instead of looking in­wards for funding.

She had earlier stated that the Federal Government would drive the recently launched “change begins with me” project in civil service.

Mrs Oyo-Ita said that the rea­son for the development was to change the orientation of the public servants towards work.

She expressed satisfaction over the way workers’ attitude to work had changed, noting that many civil servants were already buying into the new Na­tional Orientation Programme, despite Nigeria’s current eco­nomic challenges.
