The Nasarawa State government has put in place a design aimed at addressing the housing deficit in the state.
The Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Chief Philip Dada, disclosed this in an exclusive interview with our correspondent in Lafia.
He assured that the state government under the leadership of Engineer Abdullahi Sule, was determined to address the current housing deficit in the state for the benefit of both civil servants, business community and other residents of the state.
According to him, already the government is working on perfecting a strategic development plan to deliver 2,000 houses to residents of Nasarawa state.
The Commissioner further revealed that the state government is also working hard towards the reactivation of the state transport system.
He noted that government has earmarked routes for the transport system, explaining that the recent flag-off of the mega bus terminal at Karu was aimed at bringing sanity in that sector.
The state government, he said, has also concluded plans to establish similar mega bus terminal at Keffi, Akwanga and Lafia, the state capital.
“In this regards, we are in talk with private investors as the capital outlay is huge on government. Interestingly, we are getting positive responses because we have received many proposals,” he said.
