Nasarawa Gears Up for Industrial Renaissance: Adesina Hails Governor Sule’s Vision

In the run-up to the highly anticipated 2024 Nasarawa Investment Summit, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, President of the African Development Bank Group (ADB), lauded Governor Abdullahi Sule for his unwavering commitment to infrastructural development, a cornerstone in propelling the industrialization agenda of the state.

Expressing his admiration in a letter issued on Thursday, Dr. Adesina underscored the significance of Governor Sule’s focus on industrialization, aligning with the African Development Bank’s strategic imperative to foster industrial growth across the continent.

The theme of the upcoming summit, “Industrial Renaissance,” strikes a chord with the Bank’s mission to catalyse Africa’s industrialization, crucial for fostering sustainable economic progress.

Dr. Adesina also expressed regret at his inability to personally attend the summit scheduled for May 15th to 16th in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, due to prior commitments. He affirmed that Mr. Lamin Barrow, the bank’s Director General for the Nigeria Country Department, would represent him at the event.

The 2024 Nasarawa Investment Summit marks the second iteration of this biennial gathering, organised by the Nasarawa State Investment Development Agency (NASIDA).

Governor Sule, speaking as a guest on TVC’s Business Nigeria, emphasised the transformative impact of the inaugural summit in 2022, which centred on agriculture and mining.

He credited the event with catalysing positive developments in the state, including the upcoming commissioning of the largest lithium processing plant in the Nasarawa Local Government Area.

Looking ahead to the imminent summit, Governor Sule outlined its dual focus on industrialization and agriculture, reflecting the burgeoning interest and investments in these sectors within the state.

From the maiden theme, “Diamond in the Rough,” designed to spotlight Nasarawa’s potential, to the forthcoming emphasis on industrialization, Governor Sule noted the palpable progress and heightened interest in the state, setting the stage for further economic advancement.

As Nasarawa braces for the 2024 Investment Summit, all eyes are on the state’s continued trajectory towards economic transformation, fueled by visionary leadership and strategic partnerships.
