Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has reiterated his administration’s determination to make Sokoto an economic and industrial hub as well as a preferred investment destination in the country.
Governor Tambuwal stated this when the Ambassador of the Peoples Republic of China to Nigeria, Mr. Zhou Pingjian, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Sokoto.
Tambuwal said, “We are working round the clock to engage new development partners and attract more direct investments into our state. This visit offers both our governments an ample opportunity to build stronger ties and establish a more beneficial working relationship.
“Our policy thrust is to open our doors to willing investors. We are keen on sharing ideas and partnering the Chinese Embassy on ways to boost trade, agriculture, energy, rural development and improve economic relations between and among our people.”
According to the governor, Sokoto is endowed with natural and human resources that offer abundant investment opportunities for all willing investors.
Making particular reference to energy, Tambuwal said that the state currently has five viable sources of energy, which include hydro, wind, solar, gas and coal.
