The Family Homes Funds (FHF) on 28th July 2022 was awarded Africa International Housing Show’s (AIHS) affordable housing company of the year 2022.
The award presentation took place during the 16th AIHS dinner and awards night at the International Conference Center, Abuja.
AIHS housing awards 2022 is a celebration and recognition of impact, innovation, leadership, and the growth of the housing and construction industry in Nigeria and the African continent at large.
The awards honour housing game changers, companies, brands, and personalities that have contributed to the development of the sector.
“It is an award of excellence and honour for exemplary service and great values added to the housing and construction industry”, said Festus Adebayo, AIHS Coordinator.
He added that FHF got the award, premised on its delivery of over 15,000 affordable houses in the last one year.
According to him, with the recognition, AIHS looks forward to seeing more houses delivered for low-income earners from FHF in the next one year under the pragmatic leadership of Femi Adewole, Managing Director of the FHF.
Reacting, Adewole lauded the AIHS Board and the entire organizing team for their consistency and most importantly, dimming the FHF fit for the award.
While urging for continuity of the annual event, he charged all stakeholders that attended the 4-day housing conference to leverage and sustain the collaboration and relationship initiated at the event, saying: “part of what we will go away with today is a commitment that all of those things that we have heard and learnt over the last four days will become issues that we will dwell on and seek to put into action, that will translate all of those things in each of our individual opportunity areas into specific action that can make a difference.”
The Family Homes Funds, the largest housing fund in Sub-Saharan Africa with an emphasis on low-cost homes for Nigerians, was established in 2017 and started operations in 2018. The Federal Ministry of Finance and the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority once had shares in this social housing venture, which is supported by the Federal Government of Nigeria as part of its Social Intervention Programme.
