Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has revealed that his government has fundamentally decreased cases of multiple taxations in order to attract private investors.
He revealed this during the commissioning of the Port Harcourt Branch of Globus Bank on Thursday.
According to him, his government has also gotten rid of instances of harassment of businesses operating in the state.
Wike added that this will aid the creation of the right environment for investors to work in.
His words, “We have stopped harassment of businesses and multiple taxation in the State.
“As a result, several businessmen are trooping to the state. We have created the right environment for investors to operate.”
He also begged the new bank to employ qualified people in Rivers State. He disclosed that this is the only way that Rivers State Government will support the institution.
“I am only willing to do business with you, if Rivers people are employed and given prominent placements in the bank.”
