An entrepreneur, Chief Godwin Ezeemo, has advised South East governors to provide the basic infrastructure that can support the establishment of industries in their various states.
Ezeemo told journalists in Enugu on Tuesday that when established, such industries would address the high rate of unemployment in the zone.
”My advice to them as par what is on ground is that they must look up to establishing the required environment providing the necessary basic infrastructure that could support industries.
”You can’t invest where you don’t have infrastructure that could support what you are doing.
”You know you cannot really carry any reasonable industry with generators.
”The trouble that is associated with it (industry) is a lot, if you have roads, you have power, which is number one;
you can manage water and you can even manage the road.
”So, the governors we don’t need anything off them, they don’t need to share money to us; all they need to do is to make sure that we have power.
”Find a way of generating power here (for industrial clusters), keeping it; then, making an effort to get the Federal Government to support every state that wants to generate power.
”The states should be allowed to generate power and consume the power within
