Unilever boss lauds Ambode’s business drive
Managing Director of Unilever Group, Mr. Yaw Nsarkoh, on Wednesday, expressed confidence in Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s investment drive, just as he said that investors were optimistic about his administration’s quest to create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.
Nsarkoh spoke when he led top management officers of the company on a courtesy visit to Ambode at the Lagos House, Ikeja.
He said that since assumption of office, Ambode had shown his desire to attract new investments in the state by showcasing long term investors who had been in Lagos and who had been able to succeed in their business as shining examples to attract new investment into the state.
“Though the Governor has only just assumed office, I can say that he is committed to creating an enabling environment for business going by the conversation he’s been having with people and investors like myself, because I am not just the only leader of private sector business that he speaks to. He has shown that commitment and it’s up to all of us to now work in collaborative ways and partnership, so that we can achieve the governor’s vision”, Nsarkoh said.
Briefing newsmen on the import of the visit, Mr. Nsarkoh who was accompanied by top management team of Unilever, said it was a follow-up to an earlier discussion with the Governor on how to collaborate and “champion the cause of what we call partner to win and improve upon the industrial base of Lagos State.”
