Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has promised interested industrialists and investors an assistance of $2m and plots of land to any investor, who will invest in the state.
He stated this at the Imo International Convention Centre, during a dinner to mark his second term inauguration in office.
Okorocha said, “We are willing to give $2m, parcels of land and other incentives to attract industrialists to our state, so that our youths can get jobs. Industry plus factory equal to wealth creation; that is what we are going to do.”
He explained that the state government was having crucial talks with industrialists from Turkey and South Africa to build factories in the state.
The governor added that Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Chief Jerry Chukwueke and Chief Tony Chukwune, among those that recently defected to the All Progressives Congress, had promised to build two industries each in the state.
