President Muhammadu Buhari will commission the ultra-modern Karu International Market in Nasarawa State when it is completed.
The state governor, Tanko Al-Makura, spoke with State House correspondents after meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said the dwindling allocations from the federal coffers underscored the imperative of putting to use the market which has been the under construction for years
He said the proximity of the 3,000-shop market to the federal capital territory made it commercially viable.
According to him, focus is also being shifted to agriculture and other viable commercial ventures as Nasarawa boasts of tremendous resources for alternative sources of revenue.
