The agreement with Bilal African Limited Company, a Dubai-based construction firm is for the construction of additional 812 shops, which would be completed in 12 months.
The contract involves road network, expansion of fire service unit, and the provision of electrical solar system.
Commissioner of Land and Housing, Alhaji Abubakar Ladan, who signed the agreement on behalf of the state government said, the re-construction of central market was occasioned by the fire outbreak that gutted the market last year.
