Unilever expresses confidence in Lagos business environment
The Managing Director of Unilever Group, Mr. Yaw Nsarkoh, yesterday expressed confidence in the investment environment in Lagos State, saying investors were optimistic of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration’s quest to create an enabling environment for them.
Mr. Nsarkoh also said his company would soon introduce a project called GBEMIGA, whereby youths would be recruited from local communities to help in Unilever’s distribution chains in Lagos. He spoke when he led top management members of the company on a courtesy visit to Governor Ambode at Lagos House, Ikeja. According to Nsarkoh, since Governor Ambode assumed office, he has shown his desire to attract new investments into the state by showcasing long term investors who have been in Lagos and have been able to succeed in their businesses as examples for new investors.
“Though the governor has only just assumed office, I can say that he is committed to creating an enabling environment for business, going by the conversation he’s been having with people and investors like myself because I am not just the only leader of private sector business that he speaks to.
Addressing newsmen after the visit to the governor, Nsarkoh said the GBEMIGA project would be introduced in Lagos before being expanded to other parts of the country.
