Secretary to the Government of Imo State (SGS), Sir Jude Ejiogu, has called on foreign investors in the state to live up to public expectation, in order to realise the programme of the present government for massive employment and industrialisation.
He made the call while receiving foreign investors from Turkey at the Cabinet Office, Sam Mbakwe Road, Owerri, who came company of other stakeholders in line with the policy trust of the Owele Rochas Okorocha rescue mission for job, employment, factory and industry in the state.
Mr Farouk Hacibayramoglu and his team were led to the Cabinet Office by Chief Alam B Onyemaechi in company of the President, Owerri Chambers of Commerce, Mr Kelvin Mbawike, a legal practitioner. Ejiogu commended them for selecting the state for investment, assuring them that Governor Okorocha, in his bid to make the state the hub of industrialisation, is ready to cooperate with any willing and genuine investor.
The SGS recalled that it was government’s effort to bring Imo into the map of industrialised states in the country, that made the governor to take along some entrepreneurs when he visited Turkey and other foreign countries, to assess more convenient businesses that would be suitable for the people of the state. He said that part of the dividends of the trip has started to manifest.
He therefore described the visit of the Turkish businessmen as timely and in line with the policy trust of the present leadership in the state. He reassured them that an enabling environment has been created by the governor, to woo investors into the state for massive employment of the teeming Imo youths, adding that they will not regret coming to the state.
In their separate reactions, Chief Onyemaechi, Messrs Mbawike and Farouk applauded the governor for taking Imo entrepreneurs to Turkey and expressed optimism that his efforts for the trip would enhance industrial growth of the state; reiterating that the governor’s quest to improve the state’s economy would not be in vain but would rather go a long way in transforming the society.
According to the investors, the company specialises in “liquid producing” which, when completed, would engage over 250 Imo youths as workers.
