Eco­nomic blue­print fetches $4.2bn in­vest­ment in Anam­bra

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Hus­sein Ya­haya

Anam­bra State Gover­nor, Chief Willy Obiano, has said that the eco­nomic blue­print de­vel­oped by his ad­min­is­tra­tion on as­sump­tion of of­fice had started yield­ing div­i­dends.

Obiano, who spoke yes­ter­day in Abuja at an in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion with the peo­ple of his state liv­ing in the North Cen­tral states, said the state was now so­cially sta­ble and busi­ness-friendly, at­tract­ing both in­di­genes and others to seek wealth-cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

He told them that the Anam­bra State In­vest­ment Agency (ANSIPPA), charged with the man­date of at­tract­ing and fast-track­ing in­vest­ments in the state, had so far at­tracted over $4.2bn deals to the state, mostly in the agri­cul­tural sec­tor.

The lat­est in­vest­ment, he said, was sealed Tues­day with Zolt En­ergy Lim­ited to build a 40 megawatts Em­bed­ded Power Gen­er­at­ing Plant in Og­baru.

When com­pleted, power gen­er­ated from it will be dis­trib­uted mainly in Anam­bra State, the gover­nor said.
