Governor Ibikunle Amosun on Friday disclosed that his administration’s has attracted over $200bn investments to Ogun State in the last couple of years.
Amosun said the administration would continue to create an enabling environment, improve upon the infrastructural facilities and security to attract more investors.
The Governor made this known while presenting new Executive 18 – Seater bus to the National Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), at the Governor’s Office, Abeokuta, the State capital.
Amosun who spoke through the Secretary to the state Government (SSG), Taiwo Adeoluwa, said Ogun State has emerged the industrial hub of Nigeria, having beaten Lagos and Kano States respectively, to it to become the investors’ first destination of choice.
He noted that the administration would not have been able to turn the fortune of the state around for good without the active support of NACCIMA, the organised private sector and other stakeholders, saying the bus donation was meant to further acknowledge the contributions of the body to the state’s success story.
And receiving the key of the bus, the National President of NACCIMA, Iyalode Alaba Lawson, said since her emergence as head of NACCIMA, it has brought tremendous improvement as investors continued to invest in the state, pledging that more investors would soon come to further boost its socioeconomic status.
Chief (Mrs) Larsson lauded Amosun for his infrastructural development, provision of good roads and adequate security, saying those were the issues investors had first considered before coming to the state.
