As Nasarawa State marked its 26th anniversary, Governor Abdullahi Sule has highlighted the achievement of his administration. He called on the people to eschew politics of bitterness and rivalry in the build-up to next year’s general elections.

Governor Sule highlited his key achievements while delivering his anniversary address at the Lafia Square.

Governor Sule said his administration has achieved much in the areas of security, economic transformation and employment generation, among others.

On security, he said his administration embarked on a sustained collaboration with security agencies by providing them with logistics toward ensuring protection of lives and property.

He added that his administration provided operational vehicles and motorcycles to enhance effective coverage and quick response to security threats.

His administration, he said, established military super camps at Kenyehu and Udege in Toto and Nasarawa local government areas and four Special Forces in Doma to tackle security threats in the area.

On economy and investment, Governor Sule said his government initiated and executed policies and programmes for the sustainable development of the state, launched the Nasarawa Economic Development Strategy (NEDS), which outlines the development blueprint of the government.

Sule said his administration established the Nasarawa Investment Development Agency (NASIDA) which has so far attracted investments from the Dangote Group, Azman Rice Limited, and Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc, among others.

The governor also presented his scorecard in the health and other sectors, adding that his administration achieved a lot in the areas of health, education, agriculture, public sector restructuring, provision of urban/rural infrastructure and women/youth empowerment.

Other areas of achievement, according to Sule include market development, urban/rural electrification, employment opportunities and enhancement of traditional institutions, among others.

On the 26th anniversary of the state, Governor Sule acknowledged the contributions of previous administrations toward its development.

“However, there are still challenges, which we inherited, believing that development is a continuous process.  This is why we endeavoured to make some strides through various policy interventions and programme initiatives to propel development in various sectors of the state economy,” he said.
