The National Chairman of the Association, Rekiyat Ahuoiza Fache, disclosed this over the weekend, in a chat with a section of the media.


Fache, who led other executive members of the Association on a courtesy call on the Housing and Urban Development Minister, Musa Dangiwa, stated that the visit became imperative to discuss areas of common interests.


She stressed that her association was particularly concerned with the rate of growing lack of shelter in the country and was determined to work with the Ministry to provide quality and affordable housing to all Nigerians wherever they live.


The Chairman congratulated the Minister on his appointment which she described as deserving, putting the square peg in a square hole and timely, adding that the women architects would support and partner with the Ministry to ensure the reduction of the housing deficit in the country.


In his response, the Minister extended appreciation of the ministry to the Association of Women Town Planners in Nigeria, especially its leadership for the visit and desire to partner with the ministry.
