Obiano represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu said that the state would become the Dubai of Africa if Anambra indigenes could relocate 10 per cent of their investment into the state.
“Anambra will be a hub for business destination for both the indigene and non-indigenes if our people in diaspora can relocate 10 per cent of their business to the state. We call on our sons and daughters to come home and invest for the development of the state and provide jobs for the teeming youths,” he said.
The traditional ruler of Umueri, Igwe Benneth Emeka who spoke on behalf of other traditional rulers said that the international market is an opportunity for Anambra people to key into the government ‘think home’ policy.
