President Bola Tinubu, on Monday, told international investors from G20 nations that their monies are safe in Nigeria’s business environment.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, conveyed this in a statement he signed on Monday titled, ‘President Tinubu to investors: Nigerians are the greatest asset and advantage we have over other nations.’
He reasoned that beyond Nigeria’s natural resources, the people of Nigeria, whom he described as highly educated, highly skilled and naturally industrious, are the primary asset and advantage the country wields over other nations in the global race for new investments.
“Your money is safe…We are eager and ready to partner with you…We have the youngest, largest, and most vibrant youth population in Africa…equally, we have a well-educated population, a massive market, and the political will to bring it all together under my leadership,” Tinubu said at a panel discussion titled Fostering local value chains and investments in Africa – The role of the German private sector at the G20 Compact with Africa Economic Conference, hosted by German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, in Berlin.
Tinubu said since he assumed office in May 2023, his administration has embarked on transformative changes, removing all obstacles hindering businesses.
“We are reforming the economy based on the principle and philosophy of good governance,” the President affirmed.
He noted that while promoting the rule of law is crucial for attracting foreign investments, Nigeria’s energetic youth population and well-educated populace represent the most significant incentive for investors toward the mutually beneficial replication of China’s economic resurgence.
“We are eager and ready to partner with you. We have the youngest, largest, and most vibrant youth population in Africa.
“Equally, we have every ingredient required in making a modern economy: a well-educated population, a massive market, and the political will to bring it all together under my leadership,” he said.
