“This vision by the late Ahmed Idris Nasreddin saw the company growing from its little beginnings to become a major conglomerate with successful companies in manufacturing, real estate, hospitality and logistics, trading among others.

The NASCO Group is also the producer of one of the most popular biscuit brands in Nigeria.

“NASCO has over the years remained a major employer of labour in Plateau and continues to contribute to the economic prosperity of the State and Nigeria at large through tax revenue and corporate social responsibility.”

He noted that because of the faith that the late Mr Nasreddin had in Plateau, NASCO remained rooted in the state in spite of the difficult moments and experiences of various crises which affected its development.

He assured the NASCO family of the support and collaboration of the state government in their operations, while praying God to grant his soul eternal rest.
