The United Kingdom High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, has expressed UK’s readiness to partner with the Nasarawa government in the area of agriculture, mining and infrastructural development.
Laing said when she paid a courtesy visit to the Nasarawa State governor, Abdullahi Sule, in the Government House, Lafia.
Laing maintained during the visit that transformation in agriculture was very important to UK, as according to the her, “we have very good expertise in that area to partner with Nasarawa State.”
“There is also a good potential for mining in Nasarawa State. Nasarawa has a very unique posture and comparative advantage especially with its proximity to Abuja.
“Getting in place the rightful enabling environment and how quickly Nasarawa jumped through the ranks to number three in investment flow in the country is quite amazing. Therefore, we would look for areas to partner with Nasarawa State.”
