The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, is to lead industry titans, including Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote to the maiden edition of Alaghodaro Investment Summit.

The three-day summit with the theme: “Envisioning the Future,” which begins on November 10, will be hosted by the Edo State government in Benin City, the state capital.

It will explore opportunities for local and foreign direct investments in the state by highlighting the state’s competitive advantage across various sectors.

The investment summit would also be attended by local and international business leaders, as well as investors, bankers, financiers, industry experts, policymakers, the diplomatic community and the academia.

According to the Chairman of Alaghodaro 2017 Organising Committee, Asue Ighodalo, the summit will showcase the reforms which the Godwin Obaseki-led administration has carried out in critical sectors of Edo State’s economy.

“Governments are looking beyond oil to alternative revenue sources in order to ensure sustainable development, and we must also get creative and take action today for our future and the future of our children,” Ighodalo said.

He hinted that the key areas of focus at the event would include law and order, civil service reform, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, education and healthcare among others.
