Share This

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Governor Mr Godwin Emefiele, has recently identified various bottlenecks hindering genuine investors and by extension free flow of funds into the mortgage sector.

He spoke while delivering keynote address at a workshop for judicial officers on mortgage, with the theme: Mortgage Disputes in Nigeria: The Need for Expeditious Resolution of Case on Wednesday in Abuja, noted that “land tenure system as enshrined in the Land Use Act of 1978 has deterred proper development of a robust and sustainable housing sector in Nigeria”.

Mr Emefiele also discloses that difficulties in delivering affordable housing to low and middle-income households wherein lies the greatest demand for housing as another major drawback.

Speaking further, the Governor acknowledged limited access to housing and mortgage financing, complications in enforcing mortgage contracts and foreclosure on properties in Nigerian courts, slow bureaucratic procedures in land administration and the high cost of land registration as serious impediments to adequate housing delivery in Nigeria.

He also identified the high rate of population growth, high rate of rural-urban migration and the exorbitant cost of construction materials as other problems militating against the robust development of housing and mortgage sectors in the country.

While advocating for more protection of property and contract rights, the Governor commended some States in the Federation that have undertaken reforms aimed at improving access to courts and expressed optimism that the initiatives being championed by the Nigeria Housing Finance Program (NHFP) may present viable models for tackling teething problems confronting the housing sector in the country.

However, he reiterated the need to take urgent action aimed at expediting judicial process for adjudicating on mortgages and other commercial disputes.
