Niger promises conducive environment to investors

The Niger State Government has promised to provide the enabling environment for private sector to invest in the state, urging the members to utilise the opportunity to do business in the state.
Governor Babangida Aliyu, who said this in Minna on Saturday, said part of the steps already taken to woo investors to the state was the acceleration of period for the issuance of Certificate of Occupancy for land meant for industrial purposes as well as the provision of social amenities in industrial layouts set up across the state.
Aliyu, who spoke at the inauguration of the LAWU Estate in the state capital, established by a firm, said the administration was aware that government alone could not provide all the needs of the people hence the need to encourage the private sector to complement the efforts of government.
“We welcome partnership with the private sector. We have realised that government alone cannot meet all the needs of the people; this is the only way we can get the best for our people and the society,” he said.
He called on housing developers to “leverage on the favourable investment climate and incentives in Niger State, especially in land and housing sub sector, where we are putting in place institutional structures to transform housing development in the state.”
Aliyu, who said the state government was currently building over 3,000 housing units, some of which had been inaugurated, urged the private sector to “take advantage of the services of the Niger State Geographic Information System, the Public Private Partnership Agency and the Niger State One-Stop Investment Centre in this regard.”
