Nigerian Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has called on foreign investors to invest in Nigeria, assuring them that they can bet on the country’s future.
Prof. Osinbajo said this at the commissioning of the second phase expansion project foundation laying ceremony for the third phase expansion project of Beloxxi Industries Ltd in Agbara, Ogun State, South West Nigeria.
“… before MTN came into Nigeria, there are several investors who thought, What is communication in Nigeria? And thought it wasn’t going to work. MTN therefore committed itself into Nigeria and when people saw what MTN could do in a few short years all of those who didn’t invest in Nigeria, am sure regretted across the capitals of the world,” Osinbajo said.
”I want to urge foreign investors that with the way this country is going, Nigeria will not be recognizable in terms of infrastructure in the next few years. This is the country to come in for investment,” he added.
The vice president had also said at the Commissioning of the New Nestle Milo Ready-To-Drink Factory, also in Agbara, Ogun State, Nigeria, on Thursday, that the Nigerian government was a “ready-to-serve” one, “ensuring that we implement the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) to keep the economy on the path of sustainable economic growth and global competitiveness.”
“One important component of the Plan is the provision of critical infrastructure, such as roads, rail and power, which this administration is fully committed to. We’re fully committed to supporting companies such as Nestle as we spur growth and create jobs within the economy.”
