Obaseki, others, discuss investment opportunities at LSE
As more transnational companies, multilateral organisations and several trade missions swell the numbers and ranks of participants in the maiden edition of Alaghodaro Investment Summit, the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, was at the London Stock Exchange yesterday to speak to companies listed on the London house about the investment opportunities that abound in the state.
Also present were Kayode Fayemi, Oscar Onyema and Patience Oniha, who presented data to show Nigeria’s way to recovery after exiting economic recession.
At a panel session entitled “The Nigerian Opportunity,” Obaseki took his audience of global business leaders through the opportunities in Agro processing, mining, infrastructure, education and healthcare amongst other sectors in the state.
According to the governor, Alaghodaro Investment Summit is part of his administration’s drive to open up the state for more foreign and local investments and build a modern and progressive state where every citizen is empowered with opportunity.
He paraded the investment opportunities Edo State is offering investors such as the huge land mass for agro and agro-allied businesses and a favourable weather condition that have sustained the investments of Presco Plc. and Okomu Plc., both listed companies and the biggest projects financed on the continent-Azura-Edo Power Plant, which is showcasing project opportunities in the State.
Obaseki said that his decision to mark his one-year anniversary in office with Alaghodaro Investment Summit stems from the state government’s conviction that public-private partnership holds the key to unlocking the vast investment potential in the state.
