Land swap programme to create Africa’s largest green city’

An investor in the housing sector has said the Federal Capital Development Authority’s (FCDA) Land swap programme will create Africa’s largest green city.

The suspension on the swap programme was lifted by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and would be located at the Ketti district along the Airport road Abuja.

The investor, who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Hongye International Limited, Moses Ayom, said the suspension is a revolutionary step to bridge infrastructural deficit as the major stumbling block for investors confidence has been lifted.

Ayom said this yesterday in a statement, which describes the decision by FEC as a further evidence of President Buhari’s commitment to fast-track Nigeria’s quest to overcome her infrastructural, housing and employment challenges.

He stated: “The decision of the Federal Executive Council to lift the suspension on the FCT Land Swap Programme is a revolutionary step to bridge the infrastructure deficit. The resolution is a further evidence of President Buhari’s endless commitment to fast-track Nigeria’s quest to overcome her infrastructural, housing and employment challenges.

“This is a new dawn for Nigeria. A major stumbling block for investor confidence has been lifted. I congratulate all Nigerians on this, with the opening of new districts, cases of traffic congestion, housing deficits, infrastructural decay and environmental hazards will become things of the past.”

He expressed delight that with this decision, his dream of establishing Africa’s largest Green Smart City in Ketti would be a reality. He further said Nigerians will soon begin to witness urbanization programmes similar to cities like Dubai, Qatar, Schenzen and Milton Keynes.

Ayom assured Nigerians that the cost of housing will be drastically reduced with the various partnerships and synergies investors like him have put in place. He disclosed further that already, the Hongye group has signed a development partnership agreement with the Federal Housing Authority and other international environmental investors to develop Ketti district covering 308 hectares to international standards.
