Shu’aibu declined to disclose the cost of the facelift, but gave assurance that the management would brief newsmen on the development soon.

He noted that the complex appeared “beautiful from outside but very deplorable inside.”

The complex, popularly known as Lugard Hall, was inaugurated on May 19, 1959,by the late Premier of the defunct Northern Region and Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello.

The complex had experienced structural defects and dilapidation due to lack of serious rehabilitation work by successive administrations.

The complex houses the state legislature, the Northern Council of Chiefs’ chambers, administrative offices, conference halls and committee rooms, among others.
