Kpone Affordable Housing Project is 43% Complete – Asenso-Boakye

Kpone Affordable Housing Project is 43% Complete – Asenso-Boakye

The Minister of Works and Housing, Hon. Francis Asenso-Boakye, has reiterated government's commitment to making housing more affordable and indicated that housing still remained a key priority of the government.

The Minister said the kpone affordable housing project is almost 50 percent complete and will soon be ready for occupancy at the end of the year.

Hon. Asenso-Boakye said a total of 57 blocks made up of 104 flats have been completed when he appeared before the periodic Minister’s Press Briefing by the Ministry of information to present an update on the activities of the ministry.

It's no doubt that the housing supply has outpriced the average Ghanaian and has since failed to address the housing needs of a significant segment of our society.

This, the minister said, the housing delivery has failed to meet the needs of the low to middle-income group in the country.

He indicated that work on the affordable housing project in Koforidua by the State Housing Company has resumed and it is expected that work will soon commence on the Tamale and Wa housing project sites.

He announced that and affirmed government commitment toward the completion of the Saglemi Housing Project. 

He added though Cabinet is still reviewing options for the completion of the project, the government will not relent on its duty to ensure Ghanaians obtain value for money in the application of the taxpayer’s money.

He mentioned that preparatory works are ongoing on the 403 acres of land secured at the Pokuase and Amasam in the Greater Accra Region and Dedesua in the Ashanti Region for the implementation of two pilot schemes.
