Member groups of the Organised Private Sector of Nigeria (OPS) have told President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to seize the occasion of the G-20 Summit holding in India to woo foreign investors to the country.
This came as leaders from the Group of 20 (G-20) economies meets in India’s capital this week to find solutions to some of the world’s pressing problems.
The OPS, in separate interviews, said the president must take advantage of the G-20 platform to sell investment opportunities in Nigeria to the international community.
Speaking with reporters, the Director-General of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, Segun Ajayi-Kadir, noted that while it was more important for the president to address the harsh business environment in the country before looking to woo investors, the G-20 Summit presents an opportunity to sell the investment potentials of Nigeria’s economy, especially the manufacturing sector.
According to him, Nigeria’s manufacturing industry, which had witnessed declining investments lately, is replete with investment opportunities that the president can sell to would-be investors.
