Nasarawa gives Karu Int’l Market to Abuja coy

The market which has about 2,000 lock-up shops and a provision for 1,000 open stalls in the first phase was abandoned for over a decade until it was revamped and expanded by the administration of Governor Umar Tanko Al-Makura. The shops are currently being given out to the trading public on a five year renewable lease term.
Ahead of its take off, government last Thursday, through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by both parties, handed over the market to AMML to provide efficient and professional facility management services on behalf of the state.
In his remark at the occasion, the Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Nasarawa State, Barr. Emmanuel Brass Yaji noted that the completion of the market followed the commitment of Governor Al-Makura  to boost commercial activities and improve the  lives of the people of the state  hence the investment of billions of naira into the market that was abandoned many years ago.
The commissioner noted that AMML was chosen to run the market because of its track record in Abuja and in other places.
He said, “That is why the governor thought it fit that you be the one to be selected to do the job”, he said; adding, “It’s our sincere hope that you’ll not fail the people of Nasarawa State, that you will not even fail yourselves because you have a reputation to protect.”
Responding, the Managing Director, AMML, Abubakar Usman Faruk thanked the governor and people of Nasarawa State for the confidence reposed in AMML  and promised not to let them down.
AMML currently manages about 80 of publicly-owned shopping facilities in the Federal Capital City.
It also took over the management of Lafia Modern Market two years ago.
