He called on foreign investors to invest in the community to drive economic growth and development, saying Irolu people were hospitable.
He further said, “We are also hopeful that a tertiary institution will be cited in Irolu in the very near future. We are ready to receive people that want to come and invest in education because Irolu sons and daughters are well-read. We want this place to be opened up, we want a tertiary institution; we are ready to accommodate them.
“We are also calling on the governor to cite a housing estate in this town because Irolu is the gateway to the two tertiary institutions: Olabisi Onabanjo University and Babcock University. The estate will serve both schools.”
