Al-Makura kicks off Site and Services Scheme

Al-Makura kicks off Site and Services Scheme

Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Maku­ra of Nasarawa State has flagged off the Nasarawa State Site and Services Scheme, 21 years after its first attempt in 1997.
The scheme is to take care of housing estate for the low and medium-income earners in Karu Local Government Area of the state.
Al-Makura while per­forming the flag off cer­emony on Monday, reit­erated the commitment of his administration to ensuring security, sanity and housing to the peo­ple to ease up the bur­den of accommodation for those in the state and those in the corridors of the Federal Capital Terri­tory (FCT) Abuja.
The governor stated that since he came on board, one of the car­dinal policies of his ad­ministration which is to develop infrastructure across the state has been the major priority and consequently the estab­lishment of NAGIS.
According to him, the flag off of the sight and services scheme was aimed at attracting devel­opers with the interest of housing to invest on the soil of Nasarawa State, as the government cannot afford not to develop the greater Karu Master Plan due to its proximity to the federal capital.
Sequel to the plan to establish a robust hous­ing estate, Governor Al-Makura said the policy trust of the government on urban development is a project to be accom­plished despite the lean resources of the state.
He said: “Government is ready and has put ev­ery machinery in place to make the project a realis­able dream, as it’s willing also to allocate plots to private spirited individu­als with the interest of es­tate development.
