Brains and Hammers Affordable, a subsidiary of Brains and Hammers, the foremost infrastructure, hospitality, and real estate company in Nigeria, has fulfilled yet another aspect of its community relations initiative by paying compensation to the members of the host communities of the third phase of its “Bungalow City” project in Abuja. The company disclosed this at a ceremony marking the cheque presentation to the host communities.
Making the presentation to the host communities on behalf of Brains and Hammers Affordable, Niger-State Commissioner for Housing, Alhaji Muktari Na-sale, praised the company for working round the clock to fulfill its promise of affordable housing for Nigerians. He expressed deep satisfaction with the pace of work and commended the company for delivering one thousand (1000) units of housing units in less than one year. He noted that it is a confirmation of company leadership position in affordable housing development in the country.
The Commissioner said, “the government of Niger-State will continue to provide all the necessary support and community engagement needed for Brains and Hammers to achieve the development of six thousand (6000) housing units in “Bungalow City.” As a government, it’s our responsibility to create the appropriate liaison between Brains and Hammers and the host communities. Today’s compensation is a further confirmation of the company’s high sense of communal responsibility.”
Speaking for the host communities, the Dakachi Jibi (District head of Jibi,) Alhaji Dahiru Daudu, expressed his appreciation to the company for yet another timely payment of the compensation.

“When we took up the challenge to develop six thousand (6000) affordable housing units, we knew that it is only possible by building a strong synergy with our host communities. That synergy is evident in the ongoing construction of a 4kms access road that has opened up our host communities, the creation of direct, indirect and ancillary jobs through the project for the indigenes and residents of our host communities.”

That ambition has helped us develop over one thousand (1000) housing units in less than one year of the commencement of this project. We shall continue to pursue the vision of timely delivery of affordable housing with the requisite infrastructure development for the residents of Bungalow City.”
