The Federal Government on Tuesday said the multi-million naira subsidised para-military housing scheme, located in Sauka, Abuja, meant for men and officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Fire Service, Nigeria Immigration Service and the Prisons Service, will be completed by December, 2014.
Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro gave the assurance yesterday during an inspection tour to ascertain the level of progress so far on the project.
Recall that President Goodluck Jonathan laid the foundation nine months ago with a promise to replicate same in all the 36 states of the federation.
The minister assured that all the initial technical hitches that almost marred the project had been overcome, adding that the work would now move at a speedy rate and become a reality.
He said, “I am confident that the whole project will be completed and commissioned by the President before the end of this year. I personally called him to launch the foundation; it is also natural that I should call him to commission the project”.
