Speaking at the launch, Prof. Divine Ahadzie of the Centre for Settlement Studies at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, revealed that the country has an alarming housing deficit. Over 4 million Ghanaians are homeless.

Prof. Ahadzie admonished the government to take deliberate steps in resolving the housing deficit by supporting private companies in the country.

“We have huge housing problems. Everybody needs to be properly homed. As of this year, the housing deficit was about 5 million according to the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association (GREDA). However, per my estimation, the housing deficit is not less than 2 million and somewhere above 4 million.

“We have huge housing problems. Government has to support the private sector to make sure we can upscale housing delivery in this country.

“So that there would be more opportunities for families from all classes to visit the fair and make a choice in choosing their dream home,” he said.

Prof. Ahadzie advised potential home owners to grab the opportunity at the Habitat Fair to purchase affordable housing items.

“To build or to own a house is one of the major decisions to make. When it comes to making such a decision, it bothers you financially or emotionally.

“We mostly focus on the financial aspect, but the Habitat Fair will give you the opportunity to solve the emotional aspect.

“It offers families the opportunity to observe their preferred choice of house and make a definite decision,” he said.
