“I will personally ensure that one of the 100 vehicles we want to give to security agencies is given to this Mall.
“So, I want to congratulate my brother, Remi Omotosho and his wife. I also want to congratulate the father too.”
Governor Makinde also used the opportunity of the event to admonish Nigerians who believe in the ‘Japa’ Syndrome to reconsider their stance by exploring the limitless opportunities available in Nigeria, especially in the areas of investments and industry.
He noted that his government would encourage anyone with the desire to explore the opportunities by supporting them and creating opportunities for them.
He said: “Yes, the grass may appear greener on the other side, but there are enough opportunities in our country, though we are going through a lot of challenges, we are not the only country going through something like this.
“As a government, we will continue to encourage you. We will continue to point you in a direction and create opportunities for you.”
Earlier in his remarks, the CEO Bond Group of Companies, Remi Omotosho, commended the leadership and people-oriented approach of Governor Makinde.
He lauded the governor for providing an enabling environment for businesses to thrive, saying that Makinde administration’s commitment to economic development and prioritisation of tourism development as contained in his roadmap for sustainable development 2023-2027, are highly commendable.
Omotosho added that the new facility would go a long way in partnering with the state government in its bid to develop the economy of the state, not only through tourism but also in the area of internally generated revenue and job creation.
