President Bola Tinubu has provided reassurance to potential investors, affirming that they can confidently bring their capital to invest in Nigeria without apprehension.
President Tinubu conveyed this message on Tuesday, September 20, 2023, during an appearance at the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations (NASDAQ), where he had the honor of ringing the bell to signal the conclusion of a trading session.
It’s worth noting that last week, the United States Chamber of Commerce extended an invitation to Tinubu to partake in the bell-ringing ceremony at the New York-based stock exchange market.
In his address at the event, Tinubu highlighted that his administration has undertaken measures conducive to fostering foreign investments in Nigeria.
He emphasized that Nigeria boasts the largest economy and expressed that there are extensive opportunities awaiting investors to channel their funds into. The President remarked
“I am happy to bring Nigeria to your doorsteps and honoured that we’re here today with a bubbling market that will evolve the West African subregion,”
“The greatest economy is Nigeria. There is an immense opportunity in Nigeria that you can invest your money without fear.”
“We’ve removed a lot of bottlenecks and we’ve cleared subsidy that are corrupt. And we have also the exchange rate to a reliable, dependable figure floating up the change naira.
“You’re free to bring in your money and bring out your money. I count on you to invest in Nigeria.”
Tinubu was accompanied to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for the bell-ringing ceremony by Scott Eisner, the President of the U.S.-Africa Business Center (USAfBC).
