National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA) has flagged off its first pilot Housing scheme of 500 Units, comprising of two and three bedroom terrace and three bedroom detached categories for its members.
The first instance of this strategic and futuristic welfare scheme under NANTA Cooperative Society, nursed to fruition by the Abuja zone of the association, will be powered by Brains and Hammers, a reputable estate development firm, currently handling the massive five thousand Housing scheme at Kubwa city estate in the, Abuja, FCT.
The NANTA exclusive estate, will be carved out of the Kubwa city development scheme and would reflect the taste and expectations of travel trade operators, their friends and family members who may want to be part of the initiative. There is an open window for mortgage housing loan from Federal Mortgage Bank for those who may wish to draw on the loan options to speed up development of their choice property.
Mrs Susan Akporiaye, President, NANTA disclosed that the initiative is the brainchild of the Abuja Zonal Vice President, Mr Kayode Adeshola, adding that the national body will escalate the project to all NANTA members across the country.
“We got here today because of the creativity and thoughtfulness of Mr Kayode Adeshola and we at the EXCO will run with the idea for the future benefits of our members” she explained, while sharing the project ideas virtually with other NANTA members on Tuesday.
Lanre Ogunyemi from Brains and Hammers, noted that the organisation is one of the few reputable giant players in the estate development economy in Nigeria, adding that the firm has a good working relationship with Federal Mortgage Bank.
” We shall deploy our years of experience to handle the NANTA housing scheme and we are also open to individuals who maybe interested in any of our property.” Mr Ogunyemi stated.
