Chinese Ambassador, MIXTA Africa boss laud Obaseki’s land reform, as EDOGIS launches Christmas promo


The Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Zhou Pingjian,
has attributed the growing confidence among investors to set up industries in Edo State to the ongoing reforms by Governor Godwin Obaseki.
He also said the positive disposition of the Obaseki administration to a market-driven economy and
the institutionalisation of reforms, namely the Private Property Protection Law, are already attracting investors to the state.
Speaking in Benin City, Pingjian said that the feedbacks from Chinese companies that have set up in the state, indicate that the state is on an aggressive drive for investment and is committed to fine tuning her laws and policies where
necessary, to achieve her goal.
The Chinese Ambassador assured of his home country’s commitment to boost her relationship with Edo State and extend the friendship to the education sector.
Also, the Managing Director, MIXTA Africa, Mr. Kola Ashiru-Balogun, said “we decided to partner with
Edo State because of the Obaseki led-administration’s drive for developmental projects”.
MIXTA Africa, partners of the Edo Development and Property Agency (EDPA) in the development of 1,800
Emotan Garden in Edo State, said that the major elements for big ticket investment in housing development are present in the state at the moment.
Ashiru-Balogun added: “We recognise the market and we are ready to offer affordable housing. The governor has said that we should use the project to create jobs”.
Edo State Government sealed a deal for the construction of 1,800-unit Emotan housing project in Benin City with MIXTA Africa, which marks the first housing project by the state government in 16 years.
The ground-breaking ceremony for the affordable housing was performed by Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
Edo State is home to ceramic, steel and other companies owned by Chinese investors.
Also as the Yuletide approaches, the Managing Director, Edo Geographic Information Service (EdoGIS), Frank Evbuomwan, has launched the agency’s first Christmas Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) promo.
This promo launched in Benin will provide the opportunity for property owners to take advantage of a limited window to collect their Certificates of Occupancy at
heavily discounted prices for a limited period.
While doing so, lucky property owners will also stand the chance of winning exciting prizes throughout
the duration of the promo, while they also benefit from the world class customer-friendly service EdoGIS is accustomed to.
Evbuomwan, in a chat with journalists, said EDOGIS has deployed a fully automated root-to-leaf
system to collect, collate, verify and digitise all geospatial data and is responsible for issuing Certificate of Occupancy (C-of-O).
He said individuals and groups who have reasons to transact business with the agency are advised to visit EDOGIS, located at No. 102 Sapele Road, by former Water Board Building, Benin City.
