The visit which was to afford the Aso Rock visitors the opportunity to see for themselves the multi million dollars investments, had Mr. Bayo Omoboriowo as the leader of the team.
According to the visitors, President Muhammadu Buhari was very impressed with the level of development in Akwa Ibom, hence the directive by the presidency for the team to visit the factories and report back to Mr. President.
The report of the presidential team from AKS is expected to form part of the ongoing compilation of Nigeria’s tourist sites and industries across different parts of the country ahead of the country’s 60th anniversary.
