Abstract

This is a post study on security situation and business activities in Kogi state. Previous study showed that the security situation in Kogi state has become a major challenge for investors, and could pose a threat for its economy with implication for investment and job losses. However, findings from this study reveals that a high percentage of respondents agreed that for some months now their towns are becoming safe. However, a reasonable number of respondents felt that the fear of insecurity is still making investment unattractive to some business people in their towns and some business enterprises that closed down in their towns have still not re-opened. Though physical security measures have been heightened in towns as agreed by a high percentage of respondents but no new infrastructure has been put in place to create the enabling environment for business to thrive again. This study argues for the need to overhaul existing infrastructure as well as provide some new ones. As such, government should increase and improve power generation capacity to ensure that electricity is regularly supplied to every nook and cranny of the state.
