At the inauguration on March 8, Tinubu, represented by Abubakar Kyari, the minister of agriculture and food security, praised the company for its significant investment in the country.

“Let me reiterate the commitment of my administration to providing conducive environment to private investors to invest in agricultural sector in line with my eight-point agenda,” he said.

During his speech, Kyari mentioned that the GB tomato factory is the biggest in Africa. He also urged investors to consider investing in Nigeria.

“This is a sign that there is confidence in Nigeria, under the able leadership of President Tinubu, for foreign investors to come and invest,” he said.

“Let me say that this is the second time I’m coming to Kebbi State in a little over a month.

“First, I visited a Rice Mill, the largest in West Africa, and today I’m visiting the largest tomato factory in Africa, all in Kebbi State.”

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has urged foreign investors to follow the lead of GB Foods in making long-term investments in Nigeria.

Rabiu Ibrahim, the minister’s special assistant on media, shared this information in a statement on Saturday.

The minister highlighted that GB Foods has set a positive example for other investors looking to invest in Nigeria through their commitment to this project.

“GB Foods are resilient, determined and focused, and this is what we want all investors in Nigeria to be. We want people who will stay with us through thick and thin, so that Nigeria can reach the desired destination,” he said.

”This project is a good example of that, we thank GB Foods for believing and investing in Nigeria, and I want to assure you that you will receive all the support you require to continue to invest.”

“For those who say that it’s only bad stories coming out of Nigeria, this is a very good story to tell.”
