In a bid to realize meaningful development in the agricultural sector and attract more investors, Ogun State government has resolved to streamline the process of land allocation and offer incentives to investors.
The State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun who made this known while speaking at the just concluded Investors’ Forum titled, “Consolidating the Gains, Accelerating Growth”, held at June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta, said the State has enough land mass, that could accommodate more investors.
“In Ogun State, our agricultural approach is holistic and futuristic, having realised that land is a key factor for meaningful agricultural development, this administration streamlined the process of land allocation and offer incentives to serious investors,’’ he said.
Amosun said another area that would serve as a catalyst for economic growth and transformation apart from land, was investment in infrastructure, calling on indigenes of the State within and outside, to key into the vision of government by bringing their investments and harness the opportunities for the benefits of all.
The President, Manufacturing Association of Nigeria (MAN), Mr Wale Adegbite in his remark, called for the establishment of more technical schools to produce the needed technical personnel, saying that, this would in no small measure boost the socio-economy development with more employment opportunities.
The National President, Nigeria Chambers of Commerce Industries Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), Iyalode Alaba Lawson also commended the infrastructural development, provision of adequate security of lives and properties and agricultural drive of the present administration, which she said, attracted the influx of investors to the State, among other factors.
