At the Nigeria-U.S. Executive Business Roundtable held just after the closing bell, President Tinubu assured prospective investors that while he recognises that investment capital is cowardly in nature, he intentionally brought successful Nigerian industrialists and public officials to share their experiences and operational plans respectively, in addition to all that he has already done to boost the confidence of the global investment community in Nigeria’s presently reforming fiscal, monetary, regulatory and tax policy environment.
September 21, (THEWILL) – The World’s second-largest stock exchange, the National Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System (NASDAQ), on Wednesday, in the world’s financial capital, invited President Bola Tinubu to ring the closing bell, making him the first African President to ever receive the honour.
“It’s a great honour for me to be here. I am happy to bring Nigeria to your doorstep, and I am honoured that we are here today with a bubbling Nigerian stock market that will evolve in the West African sub-region. The greatest economy in Africa is Nigeria. There is an immense opportunity in Nigeria where you can invest your money without fear”, he said.
We are here for you. We will give you all the support you need to succeed and succeed abundantly”, Tinubu assured the roundtable as he pointed out cabinet officials.
“In Lagos, I saw first-hand some of the major reforms you implemented as the Governor of Lagos and the transformative effect it has had on Nigeria’s commercial capital. People have attested to the fact that the reforms you have put in place as president are quickly enhancing confidence. American business is paying attention to that, and from what we have seen for ourselves, Nigeria is proving to be a new frontier for investment. We will encourage our companies from our end as those reforms continue to deepen”, Adeyemo said.
