Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura of Nasarawa state has said that the recent visit by some governors to China will add positive value to the economy of the country, Daily Trust reports.
Al-makura told newsmen on his arrival to the country that Chinese Investors would in the next few weeks visit Nasarawa to fine tune modalities to explore coal for power generation in the state and beyond. Al-Makura was one of the nine Nigerian governors who attended the just concluded Nigeria Governors’ Investment Forum which was held in China.
A statement signed by Al-Makura’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Ahmed Tukur, said that the development arising from Al-Makura’s visit to China followed earlier steps taken at home in recent times to attract close to N350 billion in investments over the last few years, including a deal two months ago with the Dangote Group of Companies to invest N217 billion in a sugar refinery in Awe Local Government Area.
