He listed among others; the Federal Government's support for States to clear their salaries liabilities; civil servants salary review; Pension reforms, and the removal of equity contribution of the Federal Mortgage Bank housing loan of below N5 million for Civil Servants.

The Minister also commended the leadership of the Ministry's public building and housing directorate for their commitment in securing the land and development of the site master plan and infrastructure that has enabled developers' interest for investment.

Accordingly, he assured the Gwagwalada community of government’s continued effort in developing the area, citing the recent tax credit policy investment on infrastructure, and happily the Abaji- Lokoja road is among the beneficiaries.

Earlier in her keynote address, the Head of Service of the Fedration , Dr Folashade Yemi Esan thanked the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing under His Excellency, Babatunde Fashola for graciously providing the expansive land in a prime area spanning 5 hectares  .

Dr Folashade described the ground breaking event as a watershed moment in accelerating attainment of government's agenda of ensuring the welfare of civil servants through the provision of affordable housing.

Accordingly, she said, the FISH Programme was conceptualized as a vehicle to address the current housing deficit faced by civil servants consequent upon monetization policy that saw the selling of  government's quarters across the country.
