Ganduje commissions VIP lodge, 1.7km roads in Nasarawa
… To receive Sen Ewuga to APC
The National Chairman of the ruling party in Nigeria, All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has commissioned a VIP lodge and three 1.7km intra-city roads in Akwanga, headquarters of Akwanga Local Government Area, Nasarawa State.
Commissioning the projects on Saturday, Ganduje commended Governor Abdullahi Sule for building the VIP lodge and the roads, noting that the essence of State creation was to spread development across the country.
According to Ganduje, after developing Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, which was created out of Plateau State, the next in line is to select some big towns like Akwanga.
“You can see how development is trickling down to the people. I am happy for this lodge, completed and fully furnished so that important personalities will come and dialogue, start and discuss issues of development pertaining to this Local Government Area and others under this senatorial district.
“I’m so happy to be here because of this great and important project.
“The whole idea of creating a State is for the distribution of development across the country,” he said.
In his speech, the Governor explained that the idea behind the initiative was to construct similar projects in all the three senatorial zones of the State, to comfortably accommodate visitors.
“We have completed the one of Keffi. Of course the lodge in Lafia has been completed and furnished. Akwanga happens to be the headquarters of the Nasarawa North senatorial zone.
“It is historical for us that you are going to commission three projects in Akwanga,” Sule said.
The Governor said that Ganduje would also commission the TUC House, wholly constructed by his administration as manifestation of the cordial relationship existing between the government and organised Labour.
He said Ganduje will also receive into the APC, Senator Solomon Ewuga.
“That is the idea of bringing you here Your Excellency, to help us and this is very historical for us, that it is the national chairman of our party that is commissioning these projects,” Governor Sule said.
