Kogi state Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has signed a total of seven Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) at the end of the two-day Kogi state Economic and Investment Summit organised by the state government.
Speaking on the MoUs, the Commissioner for Finance, Asiwaju Idris, said four of the MoUs were signed with energy companies while two were with agriculture companies.
“The last was with a global tourism brand that has agreed to build a 20-storey facility on the top of Mount Patti to attract fun-seekers to the state. The signings were only some of the many side attractions that took place at the event,” he said.
He added that two of the MoUs were signed with PowerChina International Group Limited on a 10MW Solar power plant and provision of 33kV lines for evacuation to local grid and Ghaba International on a tourist resort.
Idris also noted that the partners were carefully selected and the process was duly certified by the Ministry of Justice.
“Kogites should be proud that at last they have a Governor that has the political will to use the resources of the state to create wealth for the majority of the people.
“To demonstrate his seriousness, Governor Bello signed two MOUs on Day One of the summit that will have lasting positive impact on the economy of the state. This shows the summit was not only a talk shop but one that has already wielded results without delay.”
