… Says Oyo’ll Become Number One Investment Destination
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday, announced plans by the state government to host a global business summit on May 19, 2023, at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London Kensington.
The governor, who made the announcement in a Newsletter, noted that the event, with the theme, ‘Accessing the Pioneer Advantage to Sustainable Investments in Oyo State’, will provide an All Access Card to investment opportunities in Oyo State.
He added that issues on investment opportunities in agribusiness, tourism, solid minerals exploitation and sustainable energy will be prioritised at the event.

I thought this would be a great time to update you on what we have been doing to prepare for Omituntun 2.0 But first, let me thank everyone who sent messages of congratulations and goodwill to me across all social media platforms. I may not have been able to respond to you all individually, but I deeply appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
While on the campaign trail, I talked about the need to grow the Oyo State economy. For example, at Akinyele Local Government Area, I spoke about the Ilutuntun Business District, which will be a modern take on the Dugbe Business District. I also spoke about attracting solid minerals and tourism investments to Oke-Ogun and Ibarapa zones.
To achieve these and progressively increase and double our present Internally Generated Revenue to N7.5 billion monthly without raising taxes, we certainly need to attract local and international investors into Oyo State. This is why we have decided to host a global business summit themed, ‘Accessing the Pioneer Advantage to Sustainable Investments in Oyo State’.
As the theme suggests, this summit will provide an All Access Card to investment opportunities in Oyo State. For this event, we will prioritise investment opportunities in agribusiness, tourism, solid minerals exploitation and sustainable energy.
We will host this event in London, one of the world’s most prominent trade and business centres since the Middle Ages. Of course, I will be there as Oyo State’s Chief Marketing Officer. You will hear directly from members of my team and me why Oyo State should be the number one investment destination in Nigeria.
So, I am using this newsletter to invite you to this summit which will be held on May 19, 2023, at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London Kensington. I promise you it will be a time of networking and business by government like you have not experienced in a while.
In the coming weeks, I will share why you should be at this summit and links to register and get the summit brochure titled, ‘A Complete Guide to Sustainable Investment in Oyo State.’ Let me quickly mention that two energy companies have already confirmed attendance. By attending this event, you will hear directly from and discuss with the top members of the Oyo State Government mutually beneficial business opportunities.
So, share this newsletter with your network; you never know who is considering investing in Nigeria and need a little nudge to think Oyo State.
Talk to you again soon.
