Al-Makura noted that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had taken Nasarawa State to the next level in the area of critical infrastructure projects.
The governor said the state was neglected in the area of infrastructure development by past administrations despite its proximity to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
