Abdullahi Sule, governor of Nasarawa, has approved the sale of the state’s government quarters to civil servants. 

According to NAN, the governor announced the development while addressing workers at the 2023 Workers’ Day celebration in Lafia on Monday

Speaking at the event, Emmanuel Akabe, the deputy governor, representing his principal, said the allocation of the government houses would be on an owners-occupiers basis.

He noted that the process would commence in June, adding that the government also had employed 3,000 new staff in state-owned higher institutions of learning since 2015.


Akabe said the government had also lifted the ban placed on in-service training for the state’s civil servants.  

“Because of the importance we attach to civil service to drive our government, we constituted a powerful committee for restructuring of the civil service on the assumption of office four years ago,” he said.

“The recommendations of the committee brought about streamlining of ministries and introduction of innovations, implementation of outstanding promotions, engagement of over 2, 000 teachers, and employment of more than 3,000 new ones.


“Employment of over 3, 000 teaching and non-teaching staff in the state’s owned tertiary institutions and regularisation of over 500 casual staff in various ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) among others.

“We have implemented outstanding promotions up to 2018 and already working towards implementing promotions from 2018-date for deserving workers to avoid accumulation.

“Arrangement has reached an advanced stage and by June, workers living in government’s quarters will start paying for the houses and own them after payment.”
