Olanrewaju explained that the ambience and the conducive environment of the state motivated the company to plan to site a factory in Ibadan.

Sulaiman said: “The governor hosted a team from Mouka Nigeria and their partners from Morocco, and the focus of the discussion was on them establishing a factory in Ibadan.

“They said they had gone round the whole of the nation and they found out that the environment here was conducive for their business. As a result of that, they want to site a factory here, and the governor has assured them that, within two weeks, anything concerning their request to secure land for their factory would be sorted out.

“The governor equally promised that every support they require in the pursuit of the dream will be given to them. So, it was a very successful meeting, and the people are eager to come to Ibadan as soon as possible.
