The president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has promised to provide Ghanaian teachers the opportunity to own houses at an affordable price with flexible payment mode.
Speaking at the 6th Quadrennial National Delegates Conference of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) in Kumasi yesterday President Akufo-Addo made these submissions.
“I am fully aware that the one challenge facing teacher ownership of homes beyond finance is their inability to purchase homes where they intend to retire.
“Through a subsidised loan programme, teachers will be provided an opportunity to own houses in desired locations in various parts of the country”, the president stated.
The government intends to establish some 10,000 affordable housing units for teachers across the country by 2024.
He noted that the Ministry of Education is working with the National Service Scheme on the project.
“In addition, the Ministry of Works and Housing is in discussion with teacher unions including your own to provide more housing opportunities for teachers.”
