It looks like the Upper East Region is set to get an affordable housing estate. A post by the Regional Minister Madam Tangoba Abayage suggested all is ready for the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to cut sod for the project to commence. The sod-cutting event is scheduled for Friday 29th November 21, 2019.
Christened Rock Estates, the project which would be undertaken by the State Housing Company Limited (SHC) is expected to help meet the housing needs of the people of the region whilst; helping Ghana improve the housing deficit currently bedeviling the nation. According to SHC, this is just the start of a drive to building affordable housing units across the country.
On a broader perspective, this project will provide a wide range of jobs for artisans and professionals from different fields in the region and across the country. The number of housing units however remain unclear.
