by Abubakar Darda'u AbdulAzeez, Michael Ejugwu Owoicho, and Dauda Dahiru

Infrastructure plays a vital role in housing development hence should be given much attention. The wellbeing of individuals in any community depends on the availability of basic infrastructure to support housing. Abuja as the capital of Nigeria is experiencing rapid population growth which has led to high demands in housing and infrastructure. The government went into partnership with estate developers in the provision of housing and infrastructure to the teeming population. The housing estates provided under this partnership suffer poor provision of infrastructure as cases of disputes between subscribers and developers have been recorded.The purpose of this study is to investigate the level of compliance of estate developers in the provision of infrastructure in public private partnership housing estates. It aims at identifyingthe basic infrastructure lacking in these estates as it would help relevant bodies play their roles efficiently in the provision of primary infrastructure and also ensure developers adhere to the agreement of partnership. A sample size of 56 estates was selected, a checklist was used for this purpose. From the findings, 75% have paved access roads, 10.4% have water supply, 79.2% have drainages, 83.3% have streetlights, 0% have sewer lines, 95.83% have electricity, 14.6% have shopping facility and 29.2% have recreational parks provided by the developers in the housing estates visited. In conclusion, there is poor provision of water supply, sewer lines, shopping facility and recreational parks in public private partnership housing estates. It is recommended that regulatory bodies ensure developers provide the required infrastructure through proper monitoring and supervision.
