Nigeria: Ogun to Create More Industrial Clusters

Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has said his administration is creating different industrial clusters across the state to provide a conducive environment for more investors to berth in it.

He stated this when he received the management of Mikano International Limited on a courtesy visit to his office in Abeokuta.

He said aside the Agbara industrial cluster, others would be sited along the Epe-Ijebu-Ode axis, Magboro and the interchange axis.

The governor noted that his administration embarked on massive road infrastructure and had also created an energy and electricity board to identify locations where gas pipelines could be extended to.

He pointed out that with good roads and availability of gas, the state would be open for industrial revolution.

Abiodun said, "This administration is investor-friendly. As a matter of fact, our vision is very specific and targeted towards bringing investors and creating an enabling environment for investors in the state."

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mikano, Mofid Karameh, acknowledged the state's deliberate attempt at making the business environment conducive for investors.

He called on the state government to help the company in its efforts at expanding into food, beverages, syringes and disposable facemask and automobiles sectors.

The firm donated facemasks made by Mikano and a patrol van assembled in the state to the governor.
