Delta State Government has reiterated its readiness to welcome serious minded investors who will add value to the governance of the state.

The Chief of Staff to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori, Hon Prince Johnson Erijo, stated this on Tuesday when a delegation of Geohelda Global Resources visited him at Government House, Asaba.

Hon Erijo said the Oborevwori administration was in a hurry to explore every investment opportunity and could only partner those with genuine interest and the capacity to give expression to their investment plans.

He told the delegation that the MORE agenda of the present administration was comprehensively designed to create development opportunities in all sectors, pointing out that the contributions of the private sector were key to driving the governance process to be able to achieve set goals.

The Chief of Staff expressed delight that Geohelda Global Resources was interested in investing in agriculture, housing, renewable energy, as well as the park and pay system, which he noted would help to boost the state’s internally generated revenue.

Hon Erijo said the state was looking forward to receiving the larger investment team so that the details of their plans and proposals could be discussed with the relevant authorities of government.

The Chief Executive Officer of Geohelda Global Resources, Mr Christopher George, who spoke on behalf of the delegation, told the Chief of Staff that they were an advance team sent to indicate interest in investing in the state.

He said the conglomerate had the capacity to invest in agriculture, housing, renewable energy, as well as improving the park and pay system in the state.

Executive Assistant to the Governor on Agriculture and Coconut Development, Hon Aneke Ifemeni, who was on the delegation, assured the team that the agricultural sector was large enough to invest in.
