Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has vowed to woo Investors to Nasarawa State, to come and explore the petroleum products recently discovered in Keana Local Government Area (LGA), as well as, established a salt industry in the area.

This according to him is due to the large availability of the product in the area.

Speaking at a campaign rally in the area, Engineer Sule explained that, he would bring to bear his wealth of experience, as someone who has worked for several years in various companies to achieve this set objectives.

He said that, the revenue that would be accrued from these investments would not only benefit the people of Keana alone, but the state and county as a whole.

“Apart from providing job opportunities to a huge number of Keana youths, the two industries, if established will bring about rapid development in the area”. He assured.

The Governor however, took time to caution the people of the area that, these laudable objectives may never come to fruition, if there is no peaceful co existence in the area because, no investor would ever waste his huge resources in an area that would be destroyed within a twinkle of an eye as result of crisis.

He reaffirmed his earlier promise that, no flag of the party would be given to any candidate whose primary election results is being challenged in a court of law until such cases were dispensed with.

He also disclosed to the people of the area that, he has never given the party flag to any candidate of the House of Assembly in the area that is currently being challenged in court.

He said this would only be, when the court finally gives its verdict. He therefore advised the supporters of the two aspirants to eschew all forms of bitterness and wait for the outcome of the case.

Engineer Sule, was full of joy at the large turnout of the people of the area to receive him. He said, “This spirit and determination has strengthen as well as, encouraged me to believe that, none of their votes would go to the opposition party”.

Earlier, the State Chairman of the APC., Mr John Mamman, had assured the large crowd that, only a governor with a vast knowledge and high level of experience in industrial work like Engineer Sule, who has worked in managerial level in both African Petroleum (AP) and Dangote Companies can ensure that the petroleum products discovered in the area is fully explored and a salt industry is also established.

The party Chairman said, the people of the state must give kudos to Governor Sule, for restoring peace in the state. Adding that, this gesture by the Governor has brought about bumper harvest in the state as farmers have gone back to farms without any fear of being attacked.

Mr. Mamman stated that, for peace to continue to reign supreme in the state, there is no alternative to Governor Sule. He therefore called on the people of the state to turn out en mass and vote for the Governor to enable the state continue to enjoy the peace he has brought about.

In his brief remarks at the occasion, Senator Tanko Almakura, who is also seeking a second term in office, told the gathering that, Engineer Sule has brought about rapid development in the state and therefore he deserves a second term.

He asked them to obtain their permanent Voters Card and get ready for next year’s general elections and ensure that they vote only APC, from the top to the bottom.
