The Government of Rivers state as an integral part of its vision and policy thrust has embraced the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model as a Key strategy for the accelerated delivery of its public infrastructure.
In a circular signed by the Executive Director Rivers State Bureau for Public-Private Partnerships Ibrahim Eddy Mark Esq said; “the delivery of public infrastructure will mean an expansion of the State’s economy and an increase in population as more people migrates into the State for available economic opportunities. This increase in population and businesses would mean an increase in food consumption and the need for short term accommodation needs as people traverse from one part of the State to another.
“The Rivers state Government intends to maximize the opportunities created from the above scenario to produce food for its populace, increase the value chain in agriculture and create job opportunities for its people, considering the anticipated inflow of migrants into the state” he noted.
The Rivers State Bureau for Public-Private Partnerships hereby invite Expression of Interest from reputable and experienced players in the hospitality and agricultural sector for Concession of the under-listed Government owned farms and catering rest houses in Rivers State.
