SHC hands over bungalows to Immigration Service

State Housing Company Limited (SHC) has handed over keys to seven new bungalows to the Ghana Immigration Service in the Western North regional capital of Sefwi Wiawso.

The seven detached bungalows comprise two and three bedrooms for the use of officers of the Western Command of GIS.

It was the third time in three years that the State Housing Company had handed over bungalows to the Ghana Immigration Service.

At a brief ceremony on Tuesday 21 June 2022, the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery was full of praise for the level of collaboration between GIS and SHC and urged other state institutions to emulate their relationship.

He observed that the successful completion of the project is a “testimony of the government’s resolve towards retooling the security agencies”.

Dery gave assurance to the security agencies that their accommodation challenges would be resolved.

The deputy MD of SHC, Sherifa Tijani-Sekyere who handed over the keys to the minister, commended Katakyie Kwasi Bumangama II, Omanhene of the Sefwi Wiawso traditional area for his visionary leadership in giving the parcel of land to SHC for a housing project.

In 2017, the Omanhene, Katakyie Kwasi Bumangama II gifted the SHC about 400 acres of land for housing purposes in anticipation of the Sefwi Wiawso being declared as a regional capital after the referendum to create new regions.

It would be recalled that in March 2021 nine units of bungalows built by SHC were handed over to the GIS in Sunyani in the Bono Region.

It formed part of moves by Ghana’s number one builder, the SHC to partner state institutions to provide accommodation facilities for their staff as well as office facilities.
