“ With the recent Elevation of the Monetary Policy Rate (MCR) to an interest rate of 26.25%, it will be difficult for any private mortgage bank to do business. This puts a lot of pressure on the Federal Mortgage Bank and Family homes funds to provide mortgages for the realization of home ownership in Nigeria” He further emphasized.

Explaining the need for better strategies to be used in the delivery of affordable housing, Adebayo further opined “we are also calling on the government to provide incentives for first time homeowners. In lieu with initiaves such as the Student Loan Policy currently being implemented by the federal government, there is no better time for such initiatives also be implemented in a similar vein for the housing Industry”.
