Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN), says it will build 77,400 houses in urban and rural communities to, address housing deficit in the country.

The association also warned Nigerians to be wary of estate racketeers to protect themselves against fraudulent transactions.

Dr Aliyu Oroji, the National President of the association, made the disclosure while reviewing the feat achieved under his stewardship in the past eight months, on Sunday in Sokoto.

Oroji disclosed that decent and affordable houses would be provided under its Rural-Urban Housing Initiative (RUHI) in the 774 Local Government Areas in the country.

He noted that the gesture was part of efforts to drastically reduce the existing housing deficit which stood at over 22 million.

Oroji added that the project would soon commence in Kaduna State in view of its friendly land system administration.

He lauded the Federal Government for earmarking N200 billion to fast track provision of about 300,000 houses in the country.

The REDAN president reiterated commitment to work in collaboration with the Federal Government to ensure successful implementation of the project.

Oroji, however, raised alarm over alleged racketeering and fraudulent activities by a group, to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

“Nigerians should desist from having any transaction with this fraudulent group of people. They allegedly duped many innocent people in some states. We must put a stop to their illegal activities. Unsuspecting members of the public alledgedly paid N250,000 to enable them register with the group, and another 100,000 for the house allocation,” he alleged, adding that the association had reported the matter to the appropriate authorities.
