Bayelsa State

for most investors. The security and infrastructural amenities are excellent. The state’s social-political environment is suitable for business and investments. Regardless of the few security concerns affecting the nation, the national and state government has adopted various important mechanisms and programs that fight criminality, making Bayelsa the most peaceful state in Nigeria today and an investment haven.
