President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has lamented over the high cost of rent and houses in the country.
The President has asked the Ghana Chamber of Construction Industry to introduce an initiative that will help build less costly properties so that a lot of Ghanaians can own homes.
Akufo-Addo speaking with the Chamber during a meeting said,
“I hear in Ghana, a simple three-bedroom home in East Legon costs between $354,000 and $500,000.”
“Many places of America get mansions for that”, he said.
This is because the materials used to build homes in the UK are local and affordable.
