IBADAN—The Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has called on investors to take advantage of the transformation programme of his administration and come to the state to invest.
This came as the governor solicited the support of the Federal Government to make the Oluyole Free Trade Zone and the Ikerete International Border Market near Saki realities.
He said this during a courtesy call on the Minister of Trade and Investment, Mr. Olusegun Aganga, in Abuja yesterday.
Governor Ajimobi said that his vision is to make the two free trade zones investors’ destinations of choice, so that more jobs would be created and growth brought to the state.
He expressed the hope that the two projects would attract development quickly to their respective locations and increase the centre-points of development in the state.
Responding, the minister disclosed that government would sign a feasibility study agreement with a foreign company on the Ikerete International Border Market in September and that when completed, the project would create over one million jobs.
