By AbdulGafar Alabelewe, Kaduna

Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has said that his administration has not relented in its commitment to attract investors and support the private sector to create jobs and develop the state.

The governor noted that in spite of all security challenges, the state has been consistent in promoting the ease of doing business, fast-tracking approvals and reinforcing its credentials as a business-friendly state.

El-Rufai, who made this known at a groundbreaking ceremony on yesterday noted that “as an industrial park, the Green Economic Zone will attract firms in the light manufacturing sector.”

The N15 billion project which is a collaboration between the Kaduna State government and KK Kingdom will provide  critical infrastructure to boost investments in the manufacturing sector, create jobs and reduce poverty in the state.

El-Rufai further said: “Such firms will create jobs as they industrialise the state, transfer skills and boost the Internally Generated Revenues of the state.

“The collaboration with the KK Kingdom is the sort of public-private partnership that the Kaduna State government constantly seeks for the development of Kaduna State,’’ he said.

Executive Secretary of the Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency (KADIPA) Umma Aboki, described “the Green Economic Zone (GEZ) is one of two industrial parks designated by the Malam Nasir El-Rufai administration as part of its strategic intents to fast-track the industrialisation of the state and attract more investments.”
