Responding, Governor Yahaya Bello assured the investors of adequate security for their investment, stressing that his government has made security its priority.

He revealed that he has already set up the technical team even as the proposed project sites have already been identified by the relevant government agencies.

Bello urged the leader of the delegation to promptly commence the construction of the projects without delay so as to solve the problems of epileptic power supply facing the state.

Promising to give requisite assistance to aid speedy completion of the work, the Governor urged the investors to use high quality materials that will conform to international best standards for the projects.
