Abuja - Katsina State has approved the construction of 250 houses at a total cost of N2,8 billion (about US$18 million).

Alhaji Surajo Makera, the general manager of the State Housing Authority, said the housing units would be constructed at Kabakawa village in Katsina metropolis.

The general manager said a Masjid, playground, shopping complex and a school are to be built in the estate.

He confirmed that Katsina state ministry of works and housing, office of the surveyor general of the state and Katsina state Urban Planning and Regional Development Board would be involved in the execution of the project.

Makera said 150 houses would be three bedrooms self-contain, while the remaining 100 would be two bedroom self-contain units.

Each palour of the three and two bedroom houses would also have a guest toilet.

He listed the components of the project to include access roads within the housing estate, provision of pipe borne water, drainages, culverts and light.

He noted that the size of the rooms in all the houses has been increased and the size of the road network also expanded to give more comfort to the occupants of the houses.
