Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra on Thursday called on investors to key into the friendly business environment created by his administration and invest in the state.
Obiano made the call while inaugurating a shopping mall (Shoprite) in Onitsha, valued at N6 billion.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the project which started in 2013 is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) between the State Government and African Capital Alliance.
The governor, who urged residents of the state to patronise the mall, disclosed that a special security arrangement had been put in place to ensure 24-hour security.
He also said that construction work from some areas near Onitsha, leading to the mall had commenced to ease traffic at the mall.
Also speaking, the Director of African Capital Alliance, Mr Osita Okonkwo, said that the project would provide jobs for over 1,000 people.
Okonkwo said that about 70 per cent of small-scale products to be at the mall would be sourced within the state.
