His Excellency, Zamfara State Executive Governor Hon Dr. Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun)has laid foundation for the construction of a 3-Star Hotel that will cost N9 billion under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) agreement between Zamfara state government and Finesse and Estetics Nigerian Limited.
During the stone laying ceremony which took place opposite the State Secretariat complex in Gusau, governor Matawalle said the project is part of the promises he made to the people of the state in his inaugural speech.
“I promised to create enabling environment for foreign and indigenous investors in the which will in turn open more employment opportunities of various categories to our people.
“This joint venture will create about 3,000 jobs in the state while the hotel itself will provide a serene environment to our investors so that they can be comfortably accommodated whenever they are in the state.
“Similarly, the state is also missing many Federal and International conferences, workshops, retreats and a host of many engagements which require luxurious accommodations.
“The 100 Keys Paradise Hotel which will meet international standards will be managed by Amber Hospitality Services Limited while the project is expected to be completed in 30 months,” the governor stated.
The governor also reiterated his earlier stand that both personnel and materials must be locally sourced by all contractors executing state government projects in the state.
