Chief Olajumoke Akinjide, the Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), wants the Oyo state government to be more investor-friendly in order to attract investors to the state.
Akinjide spoke with newsmen on Saturday, in Ibadan, at the 2013 Ibadan Annual Festival during which she was conferred with an award of excellence by the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII).
According to her, Ibadan has everything it takes to be an industrial state in its own right, given the fact that the Federal Government had created an enabling environment there.
She said that the state government must play its part to ensure that investors got access to land as well as security to encourage investment.
Akinjide urged investors to be ready to invest in the town as soon as necessary structures were provided.
“Just like the great cities of the world where the governments created structures and enabling environment for their citizens,’’ she said.
Akinjide explained that the Federal Government was already rehabilitating the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, and that it was also set to provide a standard gauge for the nation’s rail system for it to function properly.
She further said that the Federal Government would upgrade the Ibadan Airport to a zonal hub.
