Chamber urges investors to participate in Niger Trade Fair

28 June 2012, 10:51

 Minna - The Director-General of the Niger State Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, Alhaji Adamu Salihu, on Wednesday called on investors to participate in the ongoing trade fair in Minna.

He described the state as peaceful and investor-friendly.

Salihu made the appeal at the opening Niger State Trade Fair in Minna, adding that the state was a business haven for investors.

"Hitherto they (past investors) assumed that every part of the North is on fire but when they came to Minna, they saw things for themselves and  have different opinions that justified why the trade fair is holding," he said.

He said the fair would enable the state to showcase its potential to prospective local and international investors.

Salihu said the state had a lot of land and enjoyed relative peace that guaranteed good returns on investment.

He said that Osun, Ondo, Sokoto, Bauchi and Kano States were participating in the fair to showcase goods produced by their craftsmen and women and entrepreneurs.

The Vice Chairman of the Fair's Security Committee, Alhaji Nasir Liman, said "the security of this place is guaranteed as there is no serious security challenges as you can see.

"We have few security operatives all poised for the job. We thank God we don’t have anything pressing and we don’t hope to have."
