President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria remains a very competitive and viable investment destination with some of the highest returns on investment in the whole of Africa.
The President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, in a statement issued on Thursday said Buhari made the claim at the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) holding in Yokohama, Japan.
The President said he looked forward to prospective investors making inroads in priority sectors in Nigeria including power and renewable energy, petrochemical and gas, maritime, automobiles, mining, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, ICT and railway.
Buhari, who presented Nigeria’s position at Plenary Session Three on Public-Private Business Dialogue at the summit assured potential investors of good returns as a result of ongoing reform measures taken by his administration.
“I have also established a Presidential Committee on Enabling Business Environment, which is made up of key ministries and prominent businessmen to promote the Ease of Doing Business and make Nigeria more attractive and competitive for investment.
“Nigeria is committed to removing all impediments to private sector participation in these sectors by creating policies that will ensure consistency, predictability and a level playing field for all,” Buhari was quoted as saying.
