Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Friday, said proper Policing of the country would boost the confidence of foreign investors to do business in Nigeria.

Okowa said a lot of foreign investors were interested in doing business in Nigeria, especially, Delta State following the successful elections held in the country, but, observed that they desire a conducive and peaceful environment where they could run their business without harassment.

Senator Okowa was speaking when the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 5, Mr. Musa Daura, paid him a courtesy visit in Asaba, the state capital.

According to him, “because we all worked with each other in partnership, we have come out from the elections as a very peaceful nation, we must thank the Police for ensuring peace during the elections, the more peace we keep in our state, the more peace we see in our country, the more investment we are going to see nationally and we will be able to provide employment for our teeming youths.”

He added: “We have a lot of investors willing to invest in Nigeria, especially, Delta State, and they need a peaceful and encouraging environment, the Police have a great role to play in ensuring that law and order is maintained.”

Governor Okowa explained that “Delta State is a peaceful state and we will work with the law enforcement agencies to sustain the existing peace, because we want speedy development.”

While commending the Police for the roles they played during the last general elections in the country, Senator Okowa observed that it was important for security agencies to partner with electoral bodies for peaceful elections to be held.

 “I must thank the Police for the role they played during the elections, in every growing democracy, the Police must be in partnership with the electoral bodies to deliver a free and fair elections,” he said.

Earlier, AIG Daura had told the governor that they were in Asaba to congratulate him on his successful assumption of office and to solicit the support of his administration for proper policing of the state.
