Enugu State‘s government is initiating a substantial overhaul of its legal framework and, when required, introducing fresh legislation to transform the state into a favoured investment hub, reducing risks and fostering growth.
Dr. Peter Mbah’s leadership is actively focused on establishing integrated smart schools in every one of the 260 state wards, envisioning a transformation of the education sector into hubs for skill acquisition, rather than just social service institutions.
Dr. Kingsley Udeh, who serves as both the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, together with Prof. Ndubueze Mbah, the Commissioner for Education, shared these insights during a press briefing at the close of the State Executive Council meeting over the weekend.
Dr. Udeh called upon investors to capitalize on the freshly enacted Enugu State Electricity Law 2023, underlining the state executive council’s determination to engage in thorough legal reviews to increase the state’s appeal to investment.
‘Enugu State is set to be the choice destination for both foreign and local investments. To ensure that this is projected and that this is done bullishly, Enugu State government is working on reviewing laws that deal with investment, trade, and industry.’
‘The Enugu State Electricity Law, 2023, which came into being today (yesterday), will open Enugu electricity market to both foreign and local investors in the energy industry to boost power generation, transmission, and distribution.’
‘This will in turn support our industry, support our business activities, and boost our economy. We are calling on the investors to take advantage of the opportunities arising from this law.’
