The Chairman of Emohua Local Government Area, Chidi Lloyd says his administration is open to partnership with real estate companies willing to invest in the council area.
He said the LGA is strategically located and blessed with dry land to attract property development companies, and promised to grant waiver on some of the taxes payable to the local government council by real estate companies willing to site their estate in any part of the LGA.
The council chairman stated this at an event in Emohua, the headquarters of Emohua LGA yesterday night.
Reiterating his administration’s commitment to sustaining the already existing peace and security in the area, with a view to attracting rapid development to Emohua LGA, Lloyd said the local government vigilante services Secretariat building conceptualized by his administration is expected to be completed and handed over to the security outfit in few months, to further improve safety and security of investors and residents of the area.
He added that the local government council was already working out modalities for the launching of a security trust fund for the local government vigilante services and called for the support of cooperate organisations and eminent personalities in the council.
Describing the presence of Everyday Real Estate Ltd in Emohua as a timely development, Lloyd said he was happy that the first real estate development in the area was happening in his own time, predicating his heartfelt gratitude to the scriptures in the book of Zachariah that says, “Do not despise your days of little beginning”.
The council chairman commended the management of the company for not only siting their estate in Emohua but for also situating their operational office in the local government headquarters, which he said was going to provide employment opportunities for the people of the area.
Speaking further, Lloyd said he was very happy that the narrative about Emohua LGA was gradually changing for good, hence the area was already witnessing the influx of investors, stressing that the days when insecurity was used to scare away investors from the council was over, as peace and security has been stabilized across the LGA.
