Members of the Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) yesterday said that they were impressed with the performance of the Nasarawa State Governor, Mr. Abdullahi Sule.

The IPAC members also commended the Nasarawa State governor for executing legacy projects with direct bearing on the lives of the citizenry.

The National Chairman of the IPAC, Mr. Yabagi Sani, gave the commendation at the headquarters of Karu Local Government Area of the state when he led members of the IPAC on an inspection of projects executed by the governor of Nasarawa State.

Sani said that the group had decided to go round the country to inspect projects executed by state governors to
ensure accountability in governance.

He said: “We were in Kano, Imo States, and now Nasarawa State for on-the-spot assessment to see things for ourselves and ensure that elected leaders actually deliver on their campaign promises. The team will not be able to visit all the projects executed by Governor Sule in Nasarawa State due to time constraint.”

He listed some of the projects inspected in Nasarawa State to include the Sani Abacha Bus Terminal in Karu, Luvu Road in Mararaba, Permanent Site of College of Health Science and Technology in Keffi, the dual-carriage Roads from Total Filling Station to Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Keffi roundabout and from FMC Keffi roundabout to Nasarawa Road.

Others projects inspected by the IPAC’s officials, according to Sani, were “Keffi Neighborhood Market, Keffi Square and Museum, Antou bridge and Arusu Road in Kokona LGA.”

In Akwanga LGA, the team visited Moroa Road, newly established Faculty of Engineering of the Nasarawa State University Keffi (NSUK) at Gudi, remodeled VIP Lodge and Events Centre, Neighborhood Market, as well as a neighborhood Market at Nassarawa-Eggon LGA.

In Lafia, the team inspected the dual-carriage Shendam Road, Bus Terminal at Bukan-Sidi, dual-carriage Shinge Road, Aliyu Doma Banquet Hall, New Presidential Lodge, and ongoing construction of State Secretariat Complex in Lafia.

Others were the Lafia Cargo Airport, Vocational and Training Institute Lafia, Abuja and Al-Makura streets.

The IPAC chairman explained that the Mega Bus Terminal in Mararaba-Karu axis has helped in reducing traffic jam in the area, which was one of the major problems because Karu is a gateway to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

He explained that the projects inspected covered a wide spectrum including education, employment generation, tackling insecurity, reducing poverty and boosting economy of the state.

He added that the inspection was in fulfillment of the mandate of IPAC to deepen democracy, adding that they were impressed with the performance of the governor so far.

“We are also aware that the governor has employed workers, implemented promotions of civil servants and is paying salaries promptly,” Sani concluded.
