Gov Sule names Nasarawa housing estate after VP Shettima

The Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has named the Nasarawa Technology Village (NTV) housing estate in Karu, after Vice President  Kashim Shettima. 

He made this known during the official commissioning of the first phase of the estate and ground-breaking of the Tech Hub, in Aso Pada, Karu Local Government Area, on Monday.

Sule also named the road leading to the Senator Kashim Shettima Housing Estate after his Borno State counterpart, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum. 

He said the idea of the NTV came to him while still working at the Dangote Group, having visited the Silicon Valley in the United States, noting that the event symbolises the steadfast and commitment of his administration to the prosperity of Nasarawa State.

“The NTV stands as a cornerstone of our development strategy to capitalise on the opportunity presented by the digital revolution. It presents a significant leap, hope in unlocking our State’s potentials and constructing a self-sufficient economy that rewards diligence, safeguarding the vulnerable and compete on the global stage. 

“We are determined not only to keep pace with the technological advancement but also to lead the charge in building a dynamic knowledge economy that empowers our citizens that will position Nasarawa State as a regional power house,” he stated.

Governor Sule identified infrastructural development, urban housing, and sustainable housing development as part of his administration’s five game changers opportunities with the ability to catalyze advancement, economic growth, as well as attract wealth and investment.

“I have seen it, I have touched it, I have experienced it. Today, the digital economy is the way to go, not mineral deposits.  Knowledge is the way to go, and Nasarawa State has both. With our proximity to the Federal Capital, we must use both to achieve our goals,” he added.

In his remarks, Borno State Governor and special guest at the event, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, commended Governor Sule for his visionary leadership in conceiving the NTV project which he described as not only being monumental but that it holds immense promise for the State, leveraging the State’s abundant minerals resources to fuel innovation and technological development.

Also speaking, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, Minister for Housing and Urban Development, described the commissioning of the NTV as not only brilliant and timely intervention but that it would catalyse sustainable development in Nasarawa State and the FCT.

“The project shows clear vision and demonstrates the belief in the power of education and investment, and that human capital development of citizens is the foundation for sustainable development,” he said.

The Nasarawa Technology Village project is a Public-private Partnership between the Nasarawa State government, ABS Blueprint Consortium and Modern Shelter for the construction of housing units and a Technology Incubation Hub to promote ICT skills development.
