With dwindling fortunes from the black oil sector of the nigerian economy, the nation has gradually begun a conscious drive to reduce revenue from the sector to alternative sources.
One of such is the Ore Industrial hub, a major democracy dividend from the first term of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
This investment drive which began by the government is set to fulfill the dreams and yearnings of its founders.
No fewer than five new companies have settled and are ready to begin operations when eventually it takes off.
The hub would create employment opportunities, especially for the teeming idle youths, create wealth, effectively utilise home grown raw materials and boost the economy of the state.
The hub is further intended to open up the state to the world, as various businessmen and women are expected from far and near to patronise the top quality. As they move around, they would be exposed directly and indirectly to numerous business and investment opportunities in the state.
The hub would also encourage farming, as raw materials would be in high demand. Increased farming activities would attempt meeting arising demand.
Local skills would have to be developed for the hub on the short, medium and long run. This in itself would boost the manpower development sector of the economy of the state and even beyond.
