He said the advisers - Alhaji Hamza Elayo, Mallam Mohammed Aliyu and Mallam Sani Suleiman - was based on their capacity to offer essential services for the development of the state.

"I am very happy that they have agreed to join us to ensure that we take Nasarawa State to greater heights," he said.
