The market and other projects will boost economic activities, improve our standard of living and generate employment to the teeming population.
It will boost internally generated revenue of the state, thereby boosting the socio-economic development of the state.
His visit will no doubt bring blessings as it will also improve the standard of education as the president will also commission the Special School in Lafia,.

We learnt that President Buhari will visit the state to inaugurate some projects including markets and we believe that the inauguration of the projects including the Muhammadu Buhari International market, Karu, will boost economic activities.
A lot of people will be engaged when President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurates markets across the state, thereby reducing the rate of unemployment in the state and also boosting the state’s internally generated revenue.
