The British Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria, Laure Beaufils, has revealed that the Ogun State government attracted 75 percent of the Foreign Direct Investments (FDI), into Nigeria to the state.

The British envoy stated this when she led a delegation from the Department for International Development (DFID), on a courtesy visit to the governor in his Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta office yesterday.

The envoy expressed delight at the development and asked how the Senator Ibikunle Amosun led administration has been able to attract that much FDI to the gateway state.

Beaufils expressed the intention of the British government to engage the state and assist it in the agricultural and agro-allied sector.

Commended the agency for its contributions so far to the development of Nigeria, the governor urged it to further assist Nigeria in its bid to diversify its economy.
