Unilever ex­presses con­fi­dence in La­gos busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Femi Aki­nola, La­gos

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.
