The Economic Foundation of the Finishing Well Comrade
The Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole had stated from the onset that governments have no business running industries but creating the enabling environment for investors.
Indeed, he had stated that his primary focus was to ensure that businesses thrive through the creation of enabling climate.
Today, the proof of that conventional wisdom is the avalanche of private sector industries dotting the entire length and breadth of Edo State – thanks to the vastly improved environment for doing business which his policies have brought about.
As they say – the proof of the pudding is in the eating. That the industrialization policies are impacting positively on the socio-economic landscape of the state is no longer in contention.
The fact that multinationals like Dangote Group of Companies, Yong Xing, Wells Farms, Bua Group, Azura power among others have registered their presence in the state goes beyond mere acknowledgement of the changing times but of the immense possibilities in the future.
To be sure, some of these investments come under public-private-partnership initiative of the state government; others are wholly private sector driven. Together, the state is the richer for it.
Vote Continuity, Vote Godwin Obaseki and Philip Shaibu!
