The fresh investments will be a follow-up to already established 140 companies whom, Governor Ibikunle Amosun said during the presentation of 2018 Budget before the State House of Assembly, had individually invested between a minimum of $200 million and in excess of $2 billion in some instances.

Speaking exclusively with BusinessDay in Abeokuta on Monday, Bimbo Ashiru, State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, declared that government had created a One-Stop-Shop that addresses investments related bottlenecks which hitherto were impeding quick access to industrial lands and land title documents as well as other documentation.

While explaining that State government had streamlined all efforts towards the provision of critical infrastructure as well as effective security mechanisms that protect investments, lives and property within and outside designated industrial estates.

“SABMiller Interfact, they are the largest brewery in the world, they have been able to see that Ogun state is the home for them. We are central enough, we are Getaway to West African markets and we are Gateway to other Nigerian states in the country and if you are focused, you will get more investments.

“When we came in, we did enumeration and we found out that enterprises that were in Ogun state were 4,000 and when we later conducted the enumeration, the number had increased to 25,000 because through the business premises permits, we could see how industries are registering, how small businesses are registering. So, we have been able to do that and now, we are now generating between N6 and N7 billion and the target is N10 billion or more.”
