The government of Sierra Leone has handed over 200 acres of State Land to Mustapha Njie, CEO of TAF Africa Global, for the construction of 5,000 homes in John Obay.
Njie is an entrepreneur with over 45 years in the Construction, Housing and Real Estate industry. Njie, commonly known as Taf, is also a philanthropist and public speaker whose company’s goal is to provide one million affordable homes throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
On his social media handle, Taf stated that the MOU was signed in early 2022 with the Government of Sierra Leone for the development of real estate projects.
“I am delighted to announce that TAF Africa Global and the Government of Sierra Leone, represented by Hon. Turad Senesie, Minister of Lands, Housing, and Country Planning, signed a joint venture agreement today, January 31, 2023. The Project will build 5,000 reasonably priced homes and other amenities for Sierra Leoneans. The location is John Obay,” he said.
Taf added that while they anticipate the successful delivery of TAF Africa Global’s affordable housing projects in Sierra Leone, he thanked President Julius Maada Bio for inviting him to invest in Sierra Leone and for his unwavering support of this project during the 18 months of negotiations they had with his administration.
“As done in The Gambia and Nigeria, this estate will be a modern estate made up of affordable houses with requisite social amenities. We are certain that the implementation of TAF Africa Global projects in Sierra Leone would significantly alter the country’s real estate market, restructure its economy, and raise the standard of living for its good citizens,” he added.
