Abstract


This paper reviews Governance Policy on Housing, by evaluating the reform agenda of successive government from colonial administration to President Goodluck Jonathan's New Housing Policy. What are the achievements and failures in the pursuit of affordable housing? Drawings lessons from experiences in housing in the UK, China, South Africa and other developed economies, the paper affirm that preceding housing policies of Government were largely unsuccessful due to observed order of nepotism, corruption, poor political will in implementation strategies, lack of transparency and due process. The concept of social housing in Nigeria is acclaimed, but can it be the much awaited answer to Nigeria's housing problem? The paper affirms in strong terms that success is a possibility if necessary factors required for its achievement are in place and strengthened. Paper in conclusion, suggests measures for achieving affordable housing in Nigeria.
