Ebonyi state government has set up an economic team on investment strategies, that will drive the industrialization process of the state.

Inaugurating the committee, which has commissioner for Information and state Orientation, and Acting commissioner for Human capital Development, Barr.Uchenna Orji, as chairman at Government House, Abakaliki, the governor, Engr. David Umahi, charged them to review the status, analyse the potentials and recommend best investment strategies that would drive the industrialization processes of the state government.

The governor who was represented by the Deputy governor, Dr Kelechi Igwe, noted that in his bid to develop the state economically, he had established a quite number of legacy projects, but unfortunately, some were not working optimally to their installed capacity, hence, the setting up of the committee to think and advise the government.

“The state in it’s bid to also develop economically, had established quite a number of legacy projects that are standing as our own industries today.

“Unfortunately, they are not functioning optimally. The governor, being a proactive leader desires that these industries and facilities should function to it’s established and installed capacities. We have found you worthy, and capable of thinking for the state, advising the state and recommending to the governor, ways and means of getting them back on track,” he explained.

Responding on behalf of the members, the chairman of the team, Barrister Orji, thanked the governor for finding them worthy of the assignment, assuring that the committee would make the state proud, having understood the enormity of the assignment.

The committee which has 30 days to complete the assignment, was made up of 19 members.
