Current Prices Of Building Materials In Nigeria (September 2021) 

There is a shortfall in the number of houses required to accommodate the teeming Nigerian Population even though the actual percentage figure needs a confirmation. However, the Federal Government through the Honorable Minister for Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola has at least admitted that there is a shortfall when he unveiled plans currently ongoing with the Federal Ministry of Finance to address housing shortfall concerns.

The Nigerian Government, in its public pronouncements, has put the task of driving the construction industry with the private sector particularly in the housing sector. Furthermore, the Federal Government has promised to support the industry with appropriate fiscal and monetary policies to drive down lending rates for all players in the industry. 

The footprints of the private sector in real estate has seen a rapid increase in Nigeria since 2007 with the approval of several mass housing schemes, subsequently a lot of Nigerians especially those in paid employments entitled to a mortgage facility are involved in one housing project or the other. 

This article is put together to provide insight to house owners or potential house owners on the current prices of building materials in Nigeria to aid in financial planning.
