Gombe Takes Investment Drive To Morocco


Gombe State governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has visited the Charge de Affairs and Acting Nigerian Ambassador to Morocco, Adamu Abubakar Zanwa, yesterday to seek the support of the Nigerian authorities in Rabat in facilitating Gombe’s business drive in the country.

During the meeting, which took place at the Nigerian Embassy in Rabat, Governor Inuwa Yahaya explained that his delegation was in Morocco to explore and foster business opportunities that could benefit Gombe State. He stated that his administration has been committed to attracting investments to create job opportunities and propel the state’s economy.

He said the mission to Morocco is part of his broader initiative to open up Gombe State to international investments and enhance its economic landscape. This aligns with President Bola Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda to diversify Nigeria’s economy and create sustainable development through foreign partnerships.

Governor Inuwa Yahaya emphasised the need for diplomatic backing to ensure the success of the week-long investment mission and engagements with the Moroccan government and the business community.

“We are here on a business drive to attract investment and forge partnerships to spur economic growth in Gombe State. In May, I interacted with the Moroccan Ambassador to Nigeria, H.E Moha Ou Ali Tagma, on how we could engage the authorities in the Kingdom of Morocco and key stakeholders in the country’s economic and social spheres to forge stronger ties between us and leverage each other’s strengths to drive economic growth and sustainable development”, the governor stated.

He also used the medium to express his gratitude to the Nigerian Ambassador for his delegation’s warm reception upon their arrival, particularly the ambassador’s presence at the airport to welcome them.

In his response, the Acting Ambassador reaffirmed his commitment to assisting the governor and his delegation in achieving their objectives, assuring them of his full support in facilitating meetings with critical Moroccan business leaders and government officials and providing necessary diplomatic backing.
