Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State and Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State have committed to providing land in their respective states for the Federal Government’s Renewed Hope Cities and Estates programme, aiming to ensure their citizens are early beneficiaries of this affordable housing initiative.

They promised the Housing and Urban Development Minister, Ahmed Musa Dangiwa, at the Nasarawa Technology Village’s first phase opening and second phase start in Karu on Monday, March 11, 2024, as mentioned on the ministry’s website.

During his address, Governor Sule applauded the Federal Government’s work in the housing sector, carried out by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, highlighting that the preliminary actions suggest a positive outlook for the sector.

Additionally, Governor Sule stated that the Technology Village is poised to be a transformative development in Nasarawa State, featuring approximately 1,962 housing units. It is envisioned as a dual-purpose entity, blending affordable housing with a technology hub akin to Silicon Valley in the USA.

This hub will host offices for both local and international IT firms, provide training for over 2,000 students each year to become software engineers, and establish a network that connects these individuals to worldwide ICT employment opportunities, thereby fostering sustainable development in the region.
