I remain loyal to APC, says Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki on Monday restated his loyalty to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying President Muhammadu Buhari’s government will redeem the electoral promises made to Nigerians.

Speaking at the 10th Abuja Housing Show, which had top government officials and stakeholders in the housing sector in attendance, Saraki said the current administration is committed to the social welfare of the people.

He said the national assembly believes “very strongly that we must make a difference in the housing sector”.

He acknowledged the observations that the existing housing laws need respective amendment and repeal, but charged organisers of the summit to take a further step by forwarding a document of laws requiring amendments to the national assembly.

“I assure you that action will be taken instantaneously,” he promised.

Osita Izunaso, national organising secretary of the party, pegged the housing deficit in Nigeria at 17million units.

“As at today, only 10 per cent of those who dream to own a house in the country can afford it, as against the 92 per cent house owners in Singapore,” he said.

“The central objective of the Summit, however, is to come up with feasible strategies on how to end the problem of homelessness in Nigeria.”
