The Department for International Development’s (DFID) Market Development Programme in the Niger Delta has said it would get a £10 million investment in Edo State.

This was revealed by the Investment Portfolio Manager, Edo State Investment Portfolio, a component of MADE II Programme, Rufus Idris in Benin.

According to Idris, MADE wants to raise the income of 30,000 vulnerable groups in Edo and Delta states in the next two years.

“In stimulating £10m investment, we are working with government agencies such as investment promotion office to design a model that sells Edo State to investors willing to invest in the state,” he said.

“Also, we are designing an investment brochure that can promote investment. We are also talking to big firms outside Edo to expand their operation to the state and support our livelihood intervention.”
