Gombe, UK Firm Explore Strategic Partnership to Unlock New Opportunities in Agriculture, Energy, Others


In a bid to tap into the vast economic potential of Gombe State, the state government and Osprey Investment Group UK, a renowned British consultancy and investment firm, have initiated discussions aimed at unlocking new opportunities and propelling the State towards sustainable development and prosperity as envisioned by Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya.

At a meeting, held earlier today at the Government House Gombe between the Gombe State Governor and Mr. David Winn, Chairman of Osprey Investment Group UK, both parties expressed enthusiasm about the prospect of collaboration across various sectors including Agriculture, Energy, and Trade.

Mr. Winn outlined his company's expertise in project management consultancy and transaction advisory services, emphasizing its ability to facilitate strategic partnerships and provide solutions aimed at enhancing the growth and development of Gombe State.

"Osprey Investment Group, with over 50 years of experience in Nigeria, specializes in consultancy, project management, and investment. The company boasts a track record of executing projects efficiently and professionally, in collaboration with world-class technical partners". 

As part of their proposed partnership, Osprey Group intends to leverage its extensive network to link Gombe State to key development partners, including the Qatari and Saudi entities among other high-profile international institutions and organizations.  

The investment Group also indicated a willingness to assist in the formulation of comprehensive master plans for agriculture and energy sectors, tailored to unlock the state's untapped potential.

Governor Inuwa Yahaya emphasized his administration's commitment to the development of Gombe State, citing the 10-year development plan, known as DEVAGOM. This plan, meticulously crafted through extensive consultations with various stakeholders, aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aims to drive growth, development, peace, and prosperity for all residents of Gombe State.

Highlighting key initiatives such as the Muhammadu Buhari Industrial Park in Dadinkowa, Governor Inuwa Yahaya also stressed the state's focus on industrialization and job creation.

He also pointed out the vast potential in sectors such as solid minerals and agriculture, where Gombe State holds significant resources and a large workforce.

Of particular interest is Gombe's abundant livestock and vast Wawa Zange grazing reserves, which he noted,  with effective collaboration, could transform the state's agricultural landscape and stimulate economic growth along the value chain.
