The governor while pledging to protect their investment in the state, expressed optimism that the initiative will enhance internally generated revenue, create employment opportunities and industrialize the state.

“We will do all the needful for you to operate effectively in our state. This MoU that we have signed to provide 10 megawatts of power through waste is key towards providing good governance. My administration will continue to partner with the federal government to comply with power regulations to harness our potentials as enough waste abound in the state,” he said.
