The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has passed a bill to establish the Nasarawa State Investment and Development Agency.
The proposed agency will be charged with the responsibility of promoting, facilitating and coordinating investments and other allied matters in the state whenever the bill is assented to by Gov. Abdullahi Sule.
The Speaker of the House, Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi, announced the passage of the bill, which is an Executive Bill, at the plenary of the House in Lafia on Monday.
The speaker said that the bill, if assented to, would go a long way in promoting and coordinating investments in the state.
“This bill, if finally signed into law, will also boost the state’s socio-economic activities and improve its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), while enhancing the standard of living of the people of the state,” he said.
Balarabe-Abdullahi directed the Clerk of the Assembly to produce a clean copy of the Nasarawa State Investment and Development Agency Bill for presentation to the governor for his assent.
He assured Gov. Sule of the Assembly’s readiness to support his economic and investment policies aimed at boosting the overall development of the state.
