Vice-President Professor Yemi Osinbajo has called for reform of the civil service in order to ensure that civil servants become homeowners.
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande said the vice-president stated this after receiving a briefing on the ‘Federal Civil Service Strategy and Implementation Plan, 2021-2025’
The presentation of the report was held at the presidential villa in Abuja, on Friday.
“It is evident that perhaps, for the first time in a long time, some very serious attention is being paid to all of the various issues in our civil service,” VP was quoted to have said.
“I think that we should really do something that is bold, big and that will really make the difference in order to address some of the issues especially that of accommodation for civil servants.
“We can do much more with mass housing; we have a target now of 300,000 houses under our Economic Sustainability Plan (ESP) social housing scheme.
“CBN has allocated N200 billion, but we have seen that we can provide mass housing, and we can make civil servants beneficiaries of the scheme.”

“It is a vital part of what we are trying to do; we must address it,” he said.
“A civil servant ought to be able to own a home, and justify to his family the reason why he went for the job.”
