Gov’t hands over unfinished affordable housing project to SSNIT

Government has officially handed over the unfinished affordable housing project at Borteman to the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) for completion.

In this regard, government is seeking partnership with the private sector to complete the affordable housing projected it started in order to solve the housing deficits in the country.

The project, which was started by the erstwhile John Kufour administration in 2008, has since not been completed.

The housing units, including Borteman Housing Project, in the Greater Accra region and Asokore Mampong Housing Project in the Ashanti region, are expected to deal with the huge housing deficits in the country.

Joy News’ Fred Smith, who was at the symbolic handing over ceremony at Borteman on Tuesday, reported that the Ministry of Works, Housing and Water Resources, has tasked SSNIT to complete the the houses because the ministry is struggling to raise the needed funds to complete the project.

Meanwhile, not much has changed on the houses from the last visit of Joy News,  last year, as majority of the buildings, which were already being worked on by real estate company, E6 Homes, which had the contract from the Works and Housing Ministry, remained the same.

However, four completed buildings are said to have been constructed by the military as they were allocated to them.
