Why Nasarawa Is The Best Place To Do Business In Nigeria–Dangote

The President of Dangote Group of Companies, Aliko Dangote, has hailed Nasarawa state as one of the best states to do business in the country.

He said this via a video message, at the launching of two books in honour of Governor Umaru Al-Makura in Lafia.

Dangote, who was represented by a Director of the company, Engr. Mansur Ahmed said:

“It takes us about three to four years to complete an agreement for the establishment and commencement of business in many states, but I was surprised with the flexibility of starting business in Nasarawa State as the
process was concluded in just few weeks.

“I was surprised as Governor Umaru Al-Makura was running the state as a business-friendly institution and the people of Nasarawa state are receptive, because when we needed a land to establish a sugar plantation, we got the land and started Tunga Sugar Project and whenever the governor wants an explanation, he doesn’t shy away, he asks, we explain and come to understand each other very well.

“Dangote Group is now in Nasarawa State and we were all well welcomed throughout the state. I wish the person coming after this governor to emulate him and even try to improve the state to greater heights.”

He added, “Here in Nasarawa state, the company is right on track and due to the possibilities we are envisioning, we will need more land to continue developing business, agriculture and the development of Nigeria to greater heights. We need more hectares apart from the 60,000 hectares we have, as we need more hectares of land to prosper.”
