It added that the inauguration of the Akarigbo Corporate Council and the Remo Distinguished Corporate Citizens Award ceremony therefore are parts of his initiatives at reinforcing his desire for the socio-economic growth of Remoland and ensuring the mandate to make Remoland investment haven comes to fruition.
