Mr Kwabena Ampofo Appiah, Managing Director of State Housing Corporation has announced that 100 houses out of the 500 units affordable housing project at Sefwi-Wiawso will be completed by December this year.
The move, according to him, was to help address the overall two million housing deficit.
He said government was embarking on a massive housing drive and would complete all abandoned projects and begin new ones.
Mr Appiah said this when the State Housing Corporation officially named the Sefwi-Wiawso affordable housing project after the Paramount Chief of Sefwi-Wiawso traditional area, Katakyie Kwasi Bumankamah II.
The Managing Director commended the Paramount Chief for allocating 500 acres of land for the project and promised to execute good works for the benefit of Ghanaians and Western North residents in general.
For his part, Nana Katakyie Kwasi Bumankamah II, commended the government and State Housing Corporation for the project and appealed to them to ensure proper maintenance of all State Houses across the country.
“The construction of affordable housing at Waiwso is a clear indication that the NPP government is committed to rural development”

He promised to work with the traditional authorities in the Region to ensure accelerated development.
