The Federal Government has completed plans to begin mass housing units in all the six geo-political zones of the country, Dailytrust reports.

A director in the Ministry of Works and Housing, Arch. Sani Gidado, who represented the minister, Babatunde Fashola, said the projects which were designed to suit the locations of the zones and would commence as soon as the 2016 budget is passed into law.
