The Nigerian Army has indicated interest to collaborate with Cross River State Government with a view to repositioning the Obudu Ranch Resort into a world-class facility that would yield profit.
This was made known by the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Army Properties Limited, General Umaru Mohammed (rtd) during a meeting with the state governor Senator Ben Ayade at the Government House in Calabar.
The investment, which will entail creation of access both by air and land as well as communication facilities, will open up the facility and attract the desired traffic from within and outside the country to enhance its economic status.
According to Mohammed, who led other management staff of the firm to the meeting, “The Nigerian Army, just like their counterparts in the civilized societies globally is repositioning and now has a company that is exploring and fully harnessing business opportunities that abound in the country with the support of experts to participate in them.”
He said the establishment of the company has created
opportunities for professionals in the Army to contribute their quota in helping her generate revenue that will help in making life more meaningful for its personnel..
“The essence of these whole investment and business is to add value to the Army and to this end, we are recruiting credible Nigerians as partners to actualize this project with the sole aim of developing capacity which will in turn develop the system and society at large”, he added.
In his reaction, Ayade who was excited about the new thinking by the Army said it was a welcome development.
He said the partnership, when consummated, would open new vista of opportunities for the state and the people.
