The Nasarawa State government has said its infrastructural developments, especially the road constructions happening all over the state have created job opportunities and enhanced the living standard of the people.
The Managing Director of the state Urban Development Board (NUDB), Alhaji Adamu-Sule Muhammad revealed this in Lafia when members of the House of Assembly Committee on Urban Development paid an oversight visit to the board.
According to him, these projects have improved socio-economic activities and the transportation system, and even changed the lives of residents.
His words, “I want to commend you for this visit and assure you of the state government’s continued commitment to the provision of roads and other infrastructural facilities across the state.
“We have constructed, rehabilitated and completed 13 roads, among which are the Kabayi/Mararaba junction, Toto-Umaisha road, roads in Wamba Township and internal road at the Federal University, Lafia, among others.
“We also have six ongoing road projects, which include Lafia- Tofa-Agyararagu road and Panda/Kube road. All these roads were done to improve the socioeconomic activities of the people of the state.”
The Chairman of the committee, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu (APC-Awe South) added, “We are here as part of our oversight functions to see things for ourselves with the view to addressing any challenge discovered.
“We are ready to partner with you to ensure infrastructural development across the state, as the importance of the provision of roads and other social amenities to societal development cannot be overemphasised.”
