Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has promised to implement the recommendations of participants at the three-day Jigawa Economic and Investment Summit organised by the State as part of its Democracy Day celebration.

The Governor in his remarks at the closing ceremony of the summit in Dutse said that the creation of one-stop-shop facility would create synergy in investment strategies of the State.

The governor, therefore, directed the Ministry of Commerce and Industry to build a one-stop-shop in the State for investors to access information on investment opportunities in the State.

Lamido listed out priority areas to include agriculture, education, solid minerals, manufacturing, infrastructure, ICT, Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and others.

He said efforts would be made to meet investment needs of all prospective investors.

This came just as the Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Inuwa Sule Udi, on behalf of the House, assured investors that they are ready to make laws that will create enabling environment for investment.
