Sokoto State Government has said that it will sell the state government’s own houses to its civil servants occupying them on owner-occupier basis.

The government said the gesture was aimed at minimising accommodation problems being faced by the state workers.

Commissioner for Lands, Housing and Survey in the state, Bello Gwiwa, disclosed this in Sokoto on Sunday, at a ministerial press briefing to mark Aminu Tambuwal’s second year in office.

Gwiwa listed houses to be sold to include those at the parliamentary quarters, Yauri flats, Runjin Sambo housing estate, Arkilla quarters, Gwiwe intermediate housing estate and G-quarters.

Others included the government houses behind UBA quarters, temporary site quarters, among others.

“The governor has already set up a committee to ascertain the houses involved, assess their costs and recommend the prices and modalities for payment. I can tell you that we have completed our assignment and will submit the report this week,” he said.

Stating further, Gwiwa said additional 1000 houses were being constructed at Gidan-Man Ada and Gidan Solanke for the civil servants.

“When the 1000 houses are completed, they will equally be sold to the workers,” he said.

Gwiwa said that 500 houses, recently inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari, would soon be sold to the workers on owner-occupier basis, and promised to be fair to all in the housing sales exercise.

He said rising congestion in the state’s metropolis is a big concerned to the government, hence, he said, the government had resolved to relocate auto mechanics to various mechanics villages.

The commissioner said that nine new cemeteries were being established in Sokoto city and environs to address the shortage of burial grounds in the affected areas.
