Under the visionary leadership of Governor Abdullahi A. Sule, Nasarawa State has emerged as a trailblazer in harnessing the potential of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) to drive development. The Nasarawa State Investment Development Agency (NASIDA), led by Managing Director Ibrahim Abdullahi, has played a pivotal role in facilitating private sector engagement and streamlining investment processes in the state.

Through strategic partnerships with institutions such as the Federal Mortgage Bank and the Family Homes Fund, NASIDA paved the way for the Nasarawa Technology Village project. Leveraging a groundbreaking N12.5 billion guarantee line from InfraCredit, coupled with funding from Shelter Afrique, the project exemplifies innovation in residential real estate financing.
