Represented by the Director-General, Ogun Invest, Mr. Kunle Amoo, Okubadejo noted that the State is rich in industrial, agricultural and tourism potentials and poised to become Africa’s model industrial and logistics hub by year 2030, maintaining that the State is not just the industrial centre of the country, but also Nigeria’s top investment destination.

“To further achieve this feat, the State will hinge on three policy thrusts, which include, reforming government institutions, fiscal policy and private sector participation. The developmental pillars will centre around infrastructure, social welfare and wellbeing, education, human development, youth empowerment and agriculture”, Okubadejo submitted.
