    The Honourable Minister,
    Ministry Of Youth and Sport Development,
    FCT, Abuja.
    The above named enterprise has identified the negative effects of covid 19 in our country. As part of measure to grow small and medium enterprises in line with president Muhammad Buhari’s agenda headed by The Vice President, our organisation has identified opportunities in the housing sector and its capacity to jump start country’s economy post covid 19 pandemic. As a team (professionals and artisans) in the building industry, ARC DEBSUN has identified the following advantages in the building industry;
    Provision of employment for artisans in the building industry. In a single building, carpenter, bricklayer, plumber, electrician to mention a few will work. Emerging them working on many buildings, solving unemployment problem.
    Provision of employment for professionals such as architects, building engineers etc
    These developments will increase our internal generated revenue (IGR) as taxes will be paid by individual owners. Funds can also be generated through rents.
    Provision of affordable housing for the less privileged, public and civil servants in our country. These are low cost housing between 2 million and 2.5 million naira estimated cost of construction at maximum.
    Honourable Minister sir, as a measure to help small and medium enterprises grow, our organisation will appreciate any opportunity given to us to participate in this process of economic recoveries post covid 19 pandemic. Thank you sir.
