Austin Tam-George, Rivers state commissioner for information and communication, says the state is safe for foreign and local investors to do business.

Speaking at a press conference in Lagis, Tam-George invited investors to take advantage of the “rapid developmental strides” of the administration of Nyesom Wike, governor of the state.

He appealed to investors to pump money into all sectors of the state’s economy in order to create jobs.

Tam-George also said first-time investors in sectors such as tourism and hospitality, housing and property development as well as agriculture and ICT skills development, would receive attractive tax incentives and easy access to land in the state.

He said that Rivers state is among the safest destinations for investment in the country.

“The narrative that Rivers state is unsafe is an ugly slander against the state by a disgruntled political opposition”, he said

“Rivers is the oil and gas hub in the country, this state has offered the highest return on investment in Nigeria since 1958.”

Tam-George added that activities marking the golden jubilee celebrations in Rivers in May, would showcase the different opportunities for investment in the state.
