Kogi State House of Assembly has established a seven-member ad hoc committee to investigate the state’s stock in the formation of Dangote Cement and other companies.
This followed a motion by the chairman, Prince Matthew Kolawole, on Wednesday’s resumption of the plenary session.
Prince Kolawole said that despite the abundant natural resources in the state, it is still unclear what the revenues are of companies operating in the state.
He noted that while investors are welcome from the state, the government will not fold its alms on non-payment of taxes to the state by the companies.
He said the move was not intended to hunt anyone, but to ensure full compliance with state laws.
