The Ondo State Government said it has mapped out strategies to build a Diaspora Estate in the state , where one can live as if in Europe.
This is contained in a statement, after officials of the state Ministry of Regional Integration and Diaspora Relations paid a courtesy visit to the state Ministry of Lands and Infrastructure.
The statement by Mr Samson Omotayo, the Public Relations Officer of the regional integration ministry on Wednesday, said the visit was to discuss the actualisation of the idea of the proposed Diaspora Estate.
Speaking on the estate, the Commissioner for regional integration diaspora relations, Mr Boye Ologbese, explained that the concept of the Diaspora Estate which would be driven by Ondo state indigenes in Diaspora, was aimed at promoting investment opportunities.
He said it would also foster synergy as well as partnerships between government institutions and private sectors.
Ologbese said the estate would attract investors both within and outside Nigeria to accelerate growth and increase daily developmental activities in the state.
According to him, the construction of the Estate will have modern shopping malls and a standard park which will be of different phases.
The two ministries had set up a Technical Committee to work out modalities on how the vision could be actualised in line with the REDEEMED AGENDA of the present administration of Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
