Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo, Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment has assured investors of government patronage to ensure the growth of investment in Nigeria.
Adebayo said this in Abuja while addressing a delegation of Daniel Franco Institute who visited him to seek his support for the setting up of the Rabelat Entrepreneurship Centre for Animal Husbandry (RECAH) in Nigeria.
The minister in a statement by his media aide, Ifedayo Sayo, Monday said the Federal Government would continue to do its best to make the country a safe destination for investors.
He said the ministry had the mandate of facilitating the development of viable non-oil commodities.
This, he said, was in line with quality management systems geared toward boosting indigenous food and animal production, consumption and sustainability as well as acceptability at targeted international markets for foreign exchange earnings.
He pointed out that it was imperative for the ministry to engage the institute to deliberate on the nature of strategic partnership and level of collaboration.
