The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has assured of durable infrastructure, security and other incentives to ensure the influx of investors into the state.
Obaseki gave the assurance during the EdoJobs Results Show at the Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub in Benin City.
The governor said that his administration was committed to creating a business-friendly environment where investors would be confident to invest, thereby boosting economic activities in the state.
“We are working to ensure technology, security, good healthcare, and education system, electricity, and markets are all well located in Edo State. We are focusing on creating the right environment to woo investors into the state to invest.
“Edo State government will continue to create opportunities for Edo youths to express themselves. Life is all about capacity building as Edo people have been very creative throughout their history and are innovative people.
“In real estate businesses, Edo is a force and better than many states in this country. No city is well situated like Benin City across the continent. Our young people need to be challenged to face the future.
“The opportunity is here. In Edo, we have the largest oil-gas reserve. Roads and electricity networks all pass through Edo State. When you have 60 percent electricity, more investors will come to invest because they will make more profits and get returns for their money.
“We would continue to invest in EdoJobs and attract more investors into the state to develop the state. More investors are coming into the state,” the governor reassured.
Also, at the event, a film director, Stanley Ohikhuare, was optimistic of the future of the entertainment industry in Benin City.
