Buhari made the remarks while handing over keys to some new homeowners at the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) in Zuba, Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
He handed over the keys shortly after the housing estate, which spans 18.5 hectares and includes 748 units of various house types in 75 blocks in Zuba, was inaugurated on Tuesday.
The president urged the residents to live in peace and harmony, emphasising that the new housing estate is critical to his administration’s poverty-eradication efforts.
“Please accept my heartfelt congratulations to the new homeowners in this estate.” “Our promise of change has been fulfilled for you,” Buhari said as he handed over the keys to the new owners.

He went on to say that the new housing estate was addressing multidimensional poverty because the beneficiaries had “moved up the ladder of prosperity and away from poverty.”
The N9.5bn estate consists of 16 blocks of three-bedroom flats in a block of eight flats, 32 blocks of two-bedroom flats in a block of eight flats, 14 blocks of one-bedroom flats in a block of 16 flats, and five blocks of terrace duplexes in four rows.
The President, who noted that housing investments created job opportunities for artisans and other skilled members of society, urged residents of the estate to actively collaborate with the FHA to ensure the property’s upkeep and the safety of the environment.
“One of the indices of multidimensional poverty that challenges our people is housing supply, and the completion of this estate provides a solution for the beneficiaries.”The new homeowners who benefit from this estate have moved up the economic ladder and out of poverty.
”The aggressive provision of infrastructure nationwide is one of the measures that we have consciously deployed to attack poverty, create prosperity, and develop our economy,” Buhari said.
While congratulating the Chairman, Managing Director, Members of the Board, and Staff of FHA on the successful completion of the estate, President Buhari stated that the project was yet another example of his government’s commitment to lifting people out of poverty.
