Socialist Party Of Nigeria SPN To Introduce Rent Control In FCT If Elected Press Statement
The Socialist party of Nigeria SPN has assured Abuja residents that it will introduce rent control to curb the increasing cost of accommodation in the Federal Capital if its candidate, Dimeji Macaulay is elected as chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council AMAC during the area Council elections next year.
A statement released by Akande Daniel Babatunde; the Campaign Director for the Chairmanship Candidate, said the party will massively Invest in Public Housing and introduce ree Poor masses.
While lamenting the 1.7 million housing deficit in the FCT, the statement added that the housing crisis is a huge problem for the poor and the working people in Abuja with more than half of the population living in precarious houses.
SPN candidates if elected, will earn the salary of an average worker and we believe that if we can make reduction of privileges enjoyed by political class, cancellation of Security Votes, and end to fraudulent contract system, all these are enough not only to invest massively on affordable housing, but also to implement free and quality education, free and quality health services at all levels, and also it is enough to employ Nigerians with at least #30,000 as minimum wage without retrenchment.
