Yemi Osinbajo on Friday in Asaba said that peace is still the lifeline of every economy.
“Our administration is committed to tackling the prevailing concern of the Niger Delta region.
“We have set ourselves ambitious targets in that direction with very strict timelines.
“The achievement of these target will ensure robust and sustainable development of the Nigerian Oil and Gas producing areas, thereby fostering peace and prosperity in the nation.
“With peace and sustainable development on the rise, our administration’s agenda for diversification of our economy becomes quicker to attain.”
“A polluted environment disallows for favorable investments, thereby hindering employment generation and enabling an environment for social vices to develop.
“It is our hope that the NESH team and partners will align with these initiatives through individual and collective contributions of knowledge, technical expertise and direct investment
“We are ever ready to provide the enabling business environment, right incentives and other support required to realise these aspirations,” Osinbajo said.
“In the past we think that government develops a place but government only provides the enabling environment.
“And then, it is the entrepreneurial spirit of the people that cause development to happen.”
