Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has said that the state has special incentives for invesors seeking Agro-allied opportunities in Nigeria.
He said this during his presentation at a breakout session at the 21st Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja.
His words: “The major advantage Oyo State has over other states today is its size. We are leveraging on our size and vast landmass to grow our economy. There are many industrial giants in Oyo State today who were attracted to the state by our business incentives.
“I’m using this opportunity to invite more investors to partner with the state government. Oyo State is five times the size of some states in the country. With such size and landmass, as well as the goodwill of the government, there is no business that will not thrive in Oyo State.
“We are also creating a logistic centre, which will have an industrial park, storage and other facilities. We are doing everything possible to ease logistics in and around the state.”
Ajimobi said a Public Private Partnership law has been enacted in the state to create a condusive environment for investors willing to partner the state.
He added that the state was partnering Lagos State on reforms that would significantly enhance its internally revenue generation.
Other governors at the session were Mr. Willie Obiano (Anambra State); Mr. Adams Oshiomhole (Edo); Mr. Rochas Okorocha (Imo State); Mr. Rauf Aregbesola (Osun State); Mr. Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun State); and Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe.
