President BOLA TINUBU has told international investors that beyond natural resources, Nigeria’s greatest assets are its highly educated, highly skilled, and naturally industrious people.
President TINUBU said this during a panel discussion at the G20 Compact with Africa Economic Conference, hosted by German Chancellor OLAF SCHOLZ in Berlin, Germany.
According to a statement issued by his special adviser on media and publicity, AJURI NGELALE, the president said these human assets set Nigeria ahead of other nations in the global race for new investments.
He further disclosed to the investors that Nigeria is ripe for new investments, noting that the country now possesses all the ingredients required for the making of a modern economy, including its educationally equipped population, a huge market, and an administration with the political will to harness all the factors to create the required environment.
The president 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 greatest incentive provided to investors toward the mutually beneficial replication of economic resurgence.
The president also assured potential investors that Nigeria has moved beyond restrictive policies, and capital can be moved in and out of the country freely, providing flexibility for investors.
