President Goodluck Jonathan was on his feat on Friday after having a day off following, his failing health shortly after his arrival in London on Thursday.
He however presided over the Honorary International Investors Council (HIITC) meeting on the Friday, stressing that he is introducing bold reforms to make Nigeria’s economy more competitive.
He said government was addressing issues of internal security and power supply head-on, adding that he is working to build a truly competitive environment for business.
“This is why my government has remained steadfast in making Nigeria the preferred location for investors to do business because it is our only pathway to create jobs, generate wealth, and guarantee our security.
“I am delighted to inform you that investors are responding positively to the opportunities in the sector and we expect to see significant investments in the sector and across the value chain going forward. Equally, though challenges remain, we are investing in the requisite security infrastructure and intelligence network that will enable us to deal more effectively with the new threats we face, which can and do hamper investor confidence in our economy.”
According to the President, the fact that Nigeria will be hosting the World Economic Forum on Africa next year is part of the strong signs of Nigeria’s central economic and political role on the continent.
