President Bola Tinubu says Nigeria will become one of the “most conducive places on earth” for foreign investments.
The president said he would ensure that bottlenecks are removed and investors thrive in the country.
According to a statement issued by Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Tinubu spoke on Tuesday during a meeting with Gopichand Hinduja, chairperson of the Hinduja group of companies in India.
Tinubu had earlier departed Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, for the G20 summit expected to take place from September 9 to 10 in New Delhi, the Indian capital.
The president said his visit to India was focused on attracting investments to Nigeria with lucrative opportunities for investors, but most importantly, jobs for Nigerians and new revenue opportunities for the country.
He assured the Indian billionaire businessman of his support in facilitating a smoother ease of doing business.
“We are here for business. I am here to personally assure our friends and investors that there is no bottleneck that I will not break. Nigeria will become one of the most conducive places on earth to make good profits and create lasting jobs,” the statement quoted Tinubu as saying.
“With my support, there is nothing standing in your way of enjoying the unrivalled opportunities presented by our massive market and the ingenious & hardworking nature of the Nigerian people. We are open for business.”
According to the statement, Hinduja thanked Tinubu for his cooperation, saying he is confident that the president’s efforts as Lagos state governor would be replicated in his administration as the nation’s leader.
