By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to Governor Abubarkar Sani Bello of Niger state, the state is committed to the safety of investors doing business in any part of the state.
The governor made this pledge during the weekend when he led members of his cabinet to the Bobi grazing reserve along the Mariga/Mashegu Local Government boarders in the state, where he also cautioned Fulani herders against accepting strangers whose mission and intents could be harmful to their existence.
While acknowledging that the state has been facing serious security challenges, Bello stated that the government was working towards ensuring the safety of the lives and property of residents of the state.
Special attention is being paid to the grazing reserve because of its economic viability hence the resolve of the state government to protect the investment.
In his words, ‘We will do whatever it takes to secure this place. I am committed and determined to do whatever it takes to ensure that investments of both government and private sector are secured.”
“There are many rugas in this grazing reserve and we have been talking to them not to allow strangers into their midst. They should not allow people they do not know to join them.”
“In all, we are doing our best to protect and secure this entire area and we will get to it’, adding that the government is desirous to take advantage of its proximity to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to improve on its economic potentials.”
