- Engages Brains & Hammers As The Property Developer
By Michael Oyetunji
National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA) launches a pilot Housing Mortgage Scheme to afford its members opportunities to own houses in the Federal Capital Territory, with the help of Brains & Hammers, and the possibility of housing loan from the Federal Mortgage Bank in the five thousand housing units of the Bungalow City Estate, Kubwa. This was made known at a flag off virtual session held today, 27th April 2021, which had a nationwide participation of all NANTA members.
As part of her campaign promise to create beneficial initiatives for all members, the National President of the Association, Mrs Susan Akporiaye applauded this initiative as a brainchild of the Abuja Zone, birthed by Ambassador Kayode Adeshola – the Vice President, Abuja Zone.
“This initiative started out as an offshoot of NANTA Co-operative Society, initiated by the Abuja zonal administration few years ago. I appealed to my Vice President – Abuja Zone to spread the tentacle towards a national appeal, and he agreed to it. This brought about the housing project”, said the President.
In a virtual session which had about one hundred and fifty member participation, representatives of Brains & Hammers were present to answer questions and inform members of the procedures and all necessary information required to secure a property. Lanre Ogunyemi expressed that “We are a proven giant in housing scheme in Nigeria, and we have a high success rate and partnership with Federal Mortgage Bank in all our housing estates. We will deal with NANTA Co-operative Society on this particular project, although we are open to individuals who are interested in other properties we offer”. Reiterating this, Mr Festus, another representative of the developer insists that there are no hidden charges attached to any of their properties.
“This is just the beginning, and we are going to expand this initiative to all our zones nationwide. We are doing this to keep up with our campaign promises, and we hope this venture is sustained”, said Ambassador Kayode Adeshola, the Vice President – Abuja Zone.
Overall, it was a fruitful deliberation, as members exchanged pleasantries and expressed excitements towards the initiative. “It has never been done in the history of NANTA, as far I am concerned, and I must say that Madam Susan and her team are doing pretty well. This is just so superb, and we need more visionary leaders like the ones we have at the moment championing the cause of the association”, said one of the participants.
