The Governor, according to his Chief Press Secretary, Mary Noel-Berje is currently attending a bilateral, economic, trade and investment forum in Istanbul, Turkey.

According to her, Governor Bello said the negative publicity with regards to security challenges facing the country is scaring away investors. Many States, he said now have challenges convincing genuine businessmen to invest in the country, adding however that the situation is now being addressed. The Governor therefore urged investors not to be deterred from coming to Nigeria.

Governor Bello, according to Noel-Berje appreciated the organizers of the event but "suggested that more Turkish companies and or their CEOs should be invited next time so that they are able to explain to the people in Turkey that Nigeria is not as bad as it’s been portrayed."
