Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has reiterated his earlier call for indigenes of the state living in the diaspora to bring home part of their investments.
Soludo made this call during the ground breaking ceremony of Paradise City Estate in Enugwu-Agidi, Njikoka Local Government Area.
He said: “Our people living within and outside Anambra should bring their wealth home by providing shelter, industries and others.
“Most of the investments you see in most parts of Nigeria are owned mostly by Igbo people. A large number of them are from Anambra. We want our people to come home and let us develop our state.”
The governor held stakeholders meeting with indigenes of Anambra State living in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt earlier in the year where he advocated that they should bring home part of their investments.
Soludo, who was represented at the ceremony by the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS), Hon. Chido Obidiegwu, praised the management of Dotland Property Development Company Limited, owners of the estate for heeding the call to invest at home.
He called on more indigenes of the state to follow suit, adding that his administration is committed to providing enabling environment that would make Anambra livable, and a place where economic activities would thrive.
Earlier, the Managing Director of Dotland Property Development Company Limited, Mr. Emeka Anyadubalu, expressed happiness to have invested at home.
Anyadubalu said that the Paradise Estate is available for people willing to invest into property and called for more Anambra people to invest at home in order to build the state.
