With Many “Untapped Resources,” Nigeria Says It’s Ready For US Investment
Our colleagues at AFKInsider attended a United Nations event with special guest, Nigerian Barrister Ahmed Gulak.
“Our Ministry of Trade and Investment is there to assist direct foreign investors who come to Nigeria and tap the untapped areas; we have a lot of them. The opportunities in Nigeria, I believe, are much more than the opportunities in the U.S,” Gulak told AFKInsider, elaborating on collaborative economic planning.
“When you have untapped resources: mineral resources, water resources, petroleum, gas and agri — they are all waiting for direct foreign investment — and Nigeria guarantees you a return on investment. That is what the government is doing strategically to really encourage foreign direct investment,” he said.
At the event, representatives from the UN and State of New York encouraged partnerships and skill exchanges between the U.S. and Nigeria. Through GSG, directors and members are working to enlighten nations abroad about the work and opportunities that have become available under president Jonathan’s administration.
