Governor Muhammed Abdullahi Abubakar of Bauchi State has said the state is willing to partner with interested investors in different sectors of the economy.
Speaking at the Nigerian Bar Association’s Conference in Lagos recently, Governor Abubakar said Bauchi State is endowed with numerous mineral resources, vast and arable land for commercial and subsistence agriculture and tourism potentials.
During his presentation on the second day of the 2017 NBA Annual General Conference in Lagos, Gov. Abubakar, who is also a lawyer, gave a catalogue of the investment opportunities in the key and critical economic sectors where the state has cogent and glaring comparative advantages amidst calls for economic diversification due to the fall in oil revenue earnings in the country.
He called on investors to patronize and explore the resources through the economic sub-sectors as Bauchi State has positioned itself to provide incentives to all potential investors.
He disclosed that the state recently signed an MoU on 5,000 metric tonnes of sugar refinery with a view to effectively boosting the state’s GDP, increasing internally generated revenue, and creating job opportunities for its teeming youths.
