Ogun’ll help industries to source raw materials – Amosun

Ibikunle Amosun



The Ogun State Governor, Senator IbikunleAmosun, has said his administration will assist industries in the state in the area of sourcing some of their raw materials locally.

He said this when the management team of Reckitt Benkiser paid him a courtesy visit at his OkeMosan office, Abeokuta as part of activities marking this year’s World Health Day.



The team was led by firm’s Chairman, Chief Olu Falomo, and accompanied by its Vice-President, Africa, Ata Sadfar; and the Group Managing Director, Rahul Murgai, and among others.

Amosun, said the state government had simplified its policies on investment-generation, adding that his administration would assist any interested industry in getting land and producing some of its raw materials, which could be sourced locally.

The governor said the state government had attracted over 100 industries to the state due to its investor-friendly policies, adding that a recent report released by the Commonwealth Forum indicated the state had 75 per cent of the Foreign Direct Investment that came into the country.

He said, “There are a lot of things you can do for the state; I want you to go beyond your normal community service relations programmes to help improve the lots of the people, especially the youth.

“We will also be helping you in the area of backward integration, making sure that your raw materials are easily sourced from the state so that we simplify the ease of doing business.

“If any state or any nation is going to develop, it must be private sector-driven; it must be in active support of the private sector. As a government, all that we have been striving to do is to create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.”

On his own part, Sadfar said Nigeria, especially Ogun State, where the company has its factory, was strategic to the company’s business.

According to him, the company operates in 80 countries of the world with its products present in over 200 countries of the world.


He said, “Africa is one of our major strategic continents that we like to invest in. We are committed to changing the lives of the people here.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
