Six Nigerian Govs In China For Investment Drive

Govs-ChinaGovernors of Plateau, Zamfara, Delta, Osun, Jigawa and Anambra States – Simon Lalong, Abubakar Yari, Ifeanyi Okowa, Rauf Aregbesola, Abubakar Badaru and Willie Obiano respectively – are currently on an official visit to China.

The governors are in the Asian powerhouse to attract foreign investment and sign some bilateral agreements.

The governors visited an electricity firm today as part of their visit to China.

Many serving Nigerian governors have turned to China in recent times with Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, visiting in April, while his Kwara counterpart, Abdulfatah Ahmed, secured a $56million investment for the establishment of a textile industrial park during his visit in June 2016.

It would be recalled that China, during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit in April of this year, expressed interest to invest in refineries, power plants, mining companies, textile manufacturing and food processing industries in Nigeria.
