Adesola rallies investors for Abuja Technology Village

Sep, 2021 | By Tony Odey | ||

Permanent Secretary, Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Mr. Olusade Adesola, has called on investors to take advantage of the strategic location, well-structured transportation networks, access to Africa's largest consumer market and avalanche of incentives offered by Abuja Technology Village to invest more in the agency.

The Permanent Secretary, who inspected the project site located at Lugbe, Abuja, recently, disclosed that the primary infrastructure construction works on ground had already reached advanced stage of construction.

According to him, the agency, which is strategically located adjacent the Nelson Mandela Institution's African University of Science and Technology and close to other science and technology institutions, presents a unique opportunity to collectively create a huge economic cluster connecting Abuja city centre and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.

The Permanent Secretary, who further remarked that FCTA conceived the idea for such agency in a bid to diversify the economy and create sizeable employment opportunities for the youth, assured investors of the Administration's commitment to ensure that the project takes off soon, adding that it will form one of the landmark achievements of the present FCTA.

Managing Director, Abuja Technology Village, Hajiya Hauwa Yabani, who conducted the Permanent Secretary and other senior management staff of FCTA round the project site, listed Information and Communication Technology (ICT), agriculture, energy, mineral technology, among others, as areas of business opportunities available in the Technology Village for investors to seize advantage.

News Update

Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed, disclosed these while speaking during the FMFBNP/AfDB SAPZ High-Level virtual discussions last week.

With the support of her principals, Dame Joy Okoro has gradually been solving the many issues that plagued FCT Water Board with the immediate noticeable result being that revenue has shot up apparently for the first time in a while.

In a recent interview with Abuja Digest Weekly's Sennen Udoh, Mr. Ekpenyong, was a journalist's delight to behold as he volunteered consultancy counseling on effective mentoring on education, moral upbringing, and sports/other talents.

The involvement of women in sports in Nigeria in some quarters, particularly in northern Nigeria, is something that is viewed as rather unacceptable but a different ball game in other parts of the country.
