He thanked the Governor for providing an enabling environment in the state for businesses to thrive, adding that the network of roads constructed by the administration within and around their host communities at 9th Mile Corner, and other sustained efforts had enhanced the security of lives and property.

The MD explained that the state’s enabling business environment and also around its host communities and the governor’s commitment to peace and security had made it possible for the company’s planned expansion, which he expressed optimism would be approved by the board soon.

“I will like to express our gratitude for the work you have done in the network of roads around the brewery, specifically the roads leading to the Ama Brewery. I would also like to commend you for the enabling environment you have created in this state, especially the way you have been able to address the civil unrest by the communities around the brewery.

“In all, I will like to commend you for the peace and security which this state has enjoyed under your administration. I will like to say that this enabling environment you have created has, in turn, enabled our business to grow to the extent that we have been able to start the procedure for expansion of our brewery,” he said.
