British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright revealed the reason why Rivers State is his favourite state in the country stating that; “Rivers undoubtedly is my favourite state in Nigeria. I have no fear of coming into Port Harcourt. And I am encouraging British investors and others to come to the Niger Delta to invest.”
The British High Commissioner also expressed his fascination with the state’s capital where he launched the British Government’s sponsored documentary, “Defiant Embers” in the promotion of alternative livelihoods in technology, agriculture, and craft in the Niger Delta. He said; “We all know about the importance of oil and gas but throughout the documentary, we saw incredible people from the Niger Delta working in fields of technology and agriculture. “There are huge opportunities in technology to engage the youth and more women. “Fish farming, palm oil, arts, and crafts are also exciting areas to explore.”
