My administration’s commitment to sustainable development, job creation and industrialisation remains unwavering. Towards achieving these, we have been consistent in laying a solid path for Bayelsa State’s development.

In furtherance of efforts to attract the right investments to our state, I’m attending the AFREXIM Bank’s Annual Meeting (AAM) in Nassau, The Bahamas, on the invitation of the bank’s President, Prof. Benedict Oramah.

I have already held a couple of top-level meetings on the sidelines of the AAM. These included fruitful discussions with President, Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Bank of Industry, Dr. Olasupo Olusi, as well as the Founder/Chief Executive Officer of Dubai-based Arise IIP Group, Mr. Gagan Gupta.

I left all these meetings with the assurance and willingness of these firms to establish industries in our state and partner with our government in a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis to address the nagging issue of youth employment in Bayelsa.

I will also be meeting the AFREXIM Bank’s president, Prof. Oramah, on partnership and funding support for our Eco-Industrial Park project.

Our administration has in the last four years worked tirelessly to engender the conducive environment of peace and security for investments. We will not relent.

I have directed my team to follow-up on our deliberations until the results are physically seen on ground in our state.

Senator Douye Diri
