Housing and Shelter are part of the basic needs of man. Nigeria is facing housing constraints and challenges in rural and urban regions. Rural areas are faced with few houses of poor quality while the urban areas have lots of quality houses. Still, they are either costly for the average individual or too sparse to accommodate the rapid population growth in the cities and towns. Social features that increase the value of a house include electricity supply, water supply, and accessibility. The cost of building materials also places importance on the quality of homes.
These factors makes suitable housing almost accessible to the low and medium-income earners and vulnerable groups.
