Recently in a press conference, the Minster of Works and Housing, Hon. Asenso-Boakye hinted that the country has been able to acquire a 4,500-acre land. He stated that this acreage of land would be used for the construction of affordable housing units. In the Honorable Minister's speech, he noted that the country has an estimated housing deficit in excess of two million (2,000,000) housing units and is of strong opinion that the construction of these housing units would help in reducing this housing deficit.

Expectedly, many have started questioning the Minister on the new affordable housing project as proposed by the Honorable Minister. One of the notable persons is Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A Plus. Mr. Obeng took to his Facebook page to question the Minister's target of starting a new affordable housing project while there existed the Saglemi Housing Project.

The post of Mr. Obeng is shown below:

The post attracted the attention of many and thus reacted to the post accordingly. One account user seemed not to understand why the project is termed "affordable" since there is quite a large number of Ghanaians who cannot really afford the housing unit and thus called for the usage of the word "Affordable" to describe the housing project to be stopped. He wrote, " They shouldn't use the name affordable again, how many ordinary Ghanaians can afford?"

Below is the post of the user:

Below are some of the reactions of Ghanaians to the Minister's stand to start a new Housing Project:

This government during its first term according to the Vice President, put in much efforts to completing some projects which were started under the previous administration. The above is commendable but I believe attention should be paid to the already existing Saglemi Housing Project. The government should look at completing that project and from there, we can then think of starting a new one if the need be. What's your take on this?
