Nasarawa State Government has sought the partnership of the State of Kuwait in its quest for oil exploration in Keana local government area of the state.

Governor Abdullahi Sule sought the partnership during a condolence visit to the Nigerian Ambassador to Kuwait, Abdulaziz Albishir, at the Kuwait Embassy, Abuja, following the death of Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-ahmad Aljabar.

“We lost a great leader who restored the Kuwait International Relations after the Gulf war. Late Emir of Kuwait also served as key mediator in Qatar diplomatic crisis, as an International Humanitarian,” the governor said.

The visit, according to the governor, was also to explore other business opportunities that abound in the state, especially the government’s ongoing quest for revenue generation boost.

“It is our hope and expectation that Emir Nawaf will not only continue but sustain the existing partnership and bilateral relationship between Kuwait and Nasarawa State, Nigeria especially with the discovery of oil in the Keana Local Government Area of the State.
