Oyo state governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has reassured that his administration is doing everything to make the state the number one investment destination, in Nigeria.
The governor stated this while receiving a delegation of the French government led by the French Ambassador to Nigeria, Her Excellency, Mrs. Emanuelle Blatmann, at the executive council chambers of the governor’s office, Agodi, Ibadan.
Makinde, who appreciated the French government for its interest in the pacesetters state, said the government is leaving no stone unturned to make Oyo more attractive to investors.
“We want Oyo state to be the number one investment destination in Nigeria and one of the ways we think we are going to do that is to develop our infrastructure so that going around the state, you have easy access.
“That is why three months into the administration, we awarded the 65kms Moniya-Iseyin road, a major link between Ibadan and the food basket of Oyo state. We are also going ahead with other road networks in the state,” he said.
Responding, Mrs. Blatmann said France has a long-standing relationship with Oyo, pointing out several partnership efforts between the two in the education, economic and agriculture sectors.
