Am­bode prom­ises bet­ter deal for in­vestors

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Mo­hammed Shosanya, La­gos

Gov­er­nor Ak­in­wunmi Am­bode of La­gos State has promised that his ad­min­is­tra­tion will cre­ate an en­abling en­vi­ron­ment for in­vest­ments to thrive.

He said that his ad­min­is­tra­tion was mak­ing con­scious ef­forts to pro­mote ease of do­ing busi­ness in La­gos through de-em­pha­sis­ing poli­cies con­sid­ered in­im­i­cal to growth of busi­ness in the state.

Am­bode, who spoke at the launch of Mary­land Mall in La­gos, said that the de­ci­sion to cre­ate an en­abling en­vi­ron­ment was due to his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s com­mit­ment to part­ner the pri­vate sec­tor to grow the econ­omy of the state and cre­ate job op­por­tu­ni­ties.

He said that the de­ci­sion of the own­ers of the mall to build struc­tures in Mary­land and other ar­eas was a bold state­ment that the state was an in­vestors’ des­ti­na­tion of choice

The Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Stan­bic IBTC Hold­ings Com­pany, Atedo Peter­side, said that the dis­ci­pline, fo­cus and re­silience of indige­nous fi­nan­cial in­dus­try firms like Pur­ple Cap­i­tal were wor­thy of emu­la­tion.

“This suc­cess­ful de­liv­ery of the Mary­land Mall project show­cases the fact that do­mes­tic in­vest­ment, fu­elled by the in­de­fati­ga­ble spirit of Nige­rian en­trepreneurs, is key to driv­ing so­cial har­mony and na­tional eco­nomic growth,” he said.
