The Governor highlighted the importance of KADIPA, and how its success has increased investment in the state, helping since 2015 to attract over $2.1bn in actual and pledged investments.

Governor El-Rufia also mentioned that Kaduna State will not only be competing with other states in Nigeria but will also compete against all emerging markets, so he urged the agency to put in maximum effort to drive business to Kaduna State.
