Mutfwang, in a statement by his spokesman, Gyang Bere, emphasised the need for partnerships to revive several legacy projects that have been abandoned in the state in order to put them to productive use for the benefit of people of the state.

He called for investments in the power sector, agricultural value chain, storage, irrigation systems, the revitalization of Jos Wildlife Park to boost tourism and generate revenue, and the reconstruction of Jos Abattoir for meat processing and export.

Highlighting the state’s favourable investment climate, Governor Mutfwang explained that the clement weather of the state, the hospitable nature of the people, and the institutional framework his administration has put in place are some of factors that would support massive investments in the state.
