Governor ‘Seyi Makinde on Saturday appreciated investor and Chief Executive Officer, Bond Group of Companies, Pharmacist Remi Omotosho, for investing and creating employment opportunities in the state.
Speaking at the commissioning of Bond Mall, Ringroad, Ibadan, Makinde assured Omotosho of his administration’s support in terms of tax reduction, provision of maximum security, and donation of a security patrol vehicle to the mall.
This was just as he charged other investors to come into the state, stating that his government would support them with everything needed to succeed.
He said: “Let me congratulate the Bond Group of Companies, because I saw the Mall you built in Bodija and he also told me that the third one on Akala Way is almost done. I can only encourage you and let you know that anything the government needs to provide to ensure that this business is successful will be done.”
He added, “For also creating employment opportunities in Oyo State, I will say that whatever you need from the government, we will give you. If you open this place 24 hours, I will instruct Amotekun to move their patrol vehicle here to operate for 24 hours too.
“I will personally ensure that one of the 100 vehicles we want to give to security agencies is given to this Mall.
“So, I want to congratulate my brother, Remi Omotosho and his wife. I also want to congratulate the father too,” he said.
