“The advent of this mass housing will apart from provide jobs to our various skilled professionals in the construction industry, it will also upscale the value of our properties along this corridor.

“We cannot find appropriate words that can express the depth of our gratitude to Governor Peter Mbah for this developmental initiative. It has brought confidence on this administration and we will do everything within our powers to support and protect this development Government has brought to us”.
