President Muhammadu Buhari has said foreign investors in Nigeria should be rest assured of the safety of their investments and the support of the government at all levels.
He revealed this as he spoke at the official commissioning of Ondo-Linyi Industrial Hub, Ore, a project to commemorate the 3rd anniversary of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
According to him, investors should always expect a conducive environment and good working relationship with their host communities.
He then congratulated Governor Rotimi Akeredolu for his remarkable achievement in the state thus far despite the limited available resources.
His words, “We will ensure that investors are supported both at the state and national levels.”
“Let me start by congratulating the governor and people of Ondo State for this remarkable achievement.
“This project is executed in line with the spirit and drive of the Federal Government, which puts great emphasis on infrastructure development across our country, especially in the area of transportation.
“It is gratifying to note that Ondo State is one of the first few states in Nigeria that have started implementing the new Minimum Wage.
“You have been able to achieve these feats despite limited available resources.
“I am not surprised at this because available records show that Ondo State has recorded the highest percentage leap in Internally Generated Revenue, IGR, among the states, due to the effort of the APC government here.”
“We are confronting the infrastructure deficit head-on. At the inception of our administration, we were faced with decayed infrastructure on our road network and railways, because of long years of neglect and lack of investment.”
