Sule pledges to establish marble coy in Toto LG

By Mohammed Baba Busu, Umaisha (Nasarawa State).


Gov. Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has promised to establish a marble company in Ugya, Toto Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.


He said that the project was aimed at creating job opportunities as well as boosting the overall development of the area and the state at large.


Sule made the pledge on Monday at the palace of Alhaji Usman Abdullahi, the Ohimege Opanda, Umaisha, Toto LGA


He said that the marble company, when established, would also boost the government’s revenue and improve the living standards of the people of the area.


The governor commended the traditional ruler for turbaning him as Sarki Yaki Opanda (Warrior of Opanda Kingdom) and assured of his administration’s determination to prioritise security at all times.


“I am here to seek for your royal blessings, ahead of my second term bid and I have gotten the blessing of Sarki Yaki today, I appreciate you Zaki.


“God has helped us to bring peace to Toto by dislodging Darul-Salam and other criminal elements away from Toto,” he said.


Sule appreciated Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, the Speaker of Nasarawa State House of Assembly, and other stakeholders for giving his administration maximum support to succeed.


He called for loyalty and respect to the constituted authorities for development to thrive


Earlier, Abdullahi commended Sule for reviving rural electrification projects abandoned in the area since 1996.


The first-class traditional ruler said that the provision of electricity to communities in the neighbourhood would boost the socio-economic activities and improve the standard of living of the people.


“Your Excellency, you have recently provided relief materials to flood victims in this area.


“You have started the construction of Toto-Umaisha road.


“You have dismantled Darul-Salam and other criminal elements in Toto as such we are enjoying peace in Toto now.


“Whether you come or not, we are with you at all times because of your peace efforts and other developmental strides,” he said.


Abdullahi said that he turbaned Sule as the Sarki Yaki Opanda, due to his peace efforts and other developmental strides.


On his part, the Speaker of the state legislature, Abdullahi, also lauded Sule for his developmental strides.


The speaker called on the people of the area and the state to support Sule to enable him to succeed beyond 2023.


Also speaking, Sen. Abubakar Sodat, the Chairman of  Sule-Akabe Campaign Council, also drummed support for Sule and other APC candidates.


Sodangi said that the governor would continue to provide the much-needed dividends of democracy to the citizens, if re-elected in 2023.
