Rivers State has overtaken Lagos State as Nigeria’s investment destination, a report published by the Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) has revealed.
According to the state governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, while commenting on this development, said that the state government fought insecurity and criminality to a standstill, thereby making the state safe for kinds of investors to bring their capital to the state.
“We are happy that the investment profile report published by the Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) says Rivers State has overtaken Lagos State.
“This is not the work of one man. It is a collective effort. Both the state government and other stakeholders worked hard to achieve this feat,” Mr Wike said.
He said further that, “We fought insecurity across the state and reduced crime. If the state is not secure, investors will not come to the state.
“Our development of critical infrastructure, especially key roads, also created the right environment for investors to troop to the state. We are happy that investors are returning to the state”.
Commenting on the projects visited, Governor Wike informed that the Mile 1 Market would be completed in December.
He also expressed happiness with the quality of work done at the Judges’ Quarters, saying that the facility would be delivered as scheduled.
