President Bola Tinubu, attending the UN General Assembly, rang the closing bell at the Nasdaq Stock Market in New York on Wednesday, urging U.S. businesses to invest in Nigeria’s vibrant market.
Accompanied by Scott Eisner, President of the U.S.-Africa Business Center, Tinubu highlighted Nigeria’s potential as the “greatest economy” and emphasised the removal of bottlenecks, including the corrupt fuel subsidy.
The closing bell event, hosted at Nasdaq’s seven-story tower in New York City, marks the conclusion of a trading session.
He mentioned a reliable exchange rate and called for U.S. investors to take advantage of opportunities in Nigeria, saying, “I count on you to invest in Nigeria.”
“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,” Tinubu said.
