Gov Al-Makura Presents 28 Jeeps To Monarchs

In Nasarawa State where jobs are scarce and poverty rate is high, the governor, Umaru Al-Makura, has distributed 28 units of Toyota Land Cruiser Sports vehicles to second and third class traditional rulers in the state.

Presenting the vehicles to the monarchs in Lafia, the governor said the gesture would encourage peace building efforts in the state.

He said that similar gesture would soon be extended to all the first class emirs and chiefs, adding that the state government was working with traditional institution to entrench peace in the state.



    He attributed the relative peace being enjoyed in the state to the efforts of the royal fathers.

    Al-Makura commended the traditional rulers for their efforts towards curbing the incessant crises in border communities and urged people to support government to bring lasting peace to the state.

    At the moderate price of $65,970 (about N10.7 million) per vehicle, the 28 Sport Utility Vehicles, SUVs, would have cost the state over N300 million.

    Al-Makura also distributed 13 units of Toyota Corolla saloon cars to the newly elected local government chairmen in the state.
