The Vice President said the state had taken the right step, adding that the future of Nigeria “rests in the hands of business owners and entrepreneurs.

“The successes we have seen so far in Gombe state are substantially on account of the effective collaboration of the private sector, the state and federal government.

“Our federation benefits our people when states and federal authorities alongside private actors think and work together.

“Let me again re-emphasise the federal government’s pledge to work with the Gombe state government to give you all the support that you need in order to ensure that your businesses and business environment succeed.”

While commending Gov. Inuwa Yahaya’s determination towards improving the fortunes of his people, Osinbajo said the summit would help create an enabling environment for sustainable prosperity and all-inclusive growth for the people.

The vice president said from 2016 till date, the federal government ‘aggressively’ pursued under the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) initiative, the creation of an environment that allowed Nigeria’s businesses to thrive.

This, he said, the federal government had done by removing the bottlenecks that characterised interface with agencies and regulators.
