Chairman of United Nigeria Airlines, Dr. Obiora Okonkwo, has called for the support of the Enugu State government towards driving investments to the state.

Okonkwo lauded Governor Ugwuanyi for his leadership focus and vision which has seen the state rank as one of the most peaceful states and better positioned to attract more investments.

In his remark, the Enugu state governor lauded Dr. Okonkwo for making the state the operational hub of his airline adding that the decision was appropriate given the states pre-eminent place in the history of the southeast region.

Promising to encourage every investor who is desirous of bringing more business to the state, Governor Ugwuanyi acknowledge that tax from the airline had impacted positively on the internally generate revenue of Enugu State.

He said the doors of the state are opened to every investor adding that the state government would do all that is in its powers to encourage more businesses to bring their corporate headquarters to Enugu State.

He said the state boasts of very many investment opportunities adding that return on investments in Enugu state had quadrupled in the past five years.

Governor Ugwuanyi said the state government would work with the management of United Nigeria Airlines to achieve objectives of choosing the state ahead of others in the choice of its operational hub.
