- The Chief Investment Officer of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), Mrs. Safiya Usman, says there are numerous advantages of investing in Nigeria.
According to her,“Our population alone is an attraction. 170 million people is a huge market and you will agree with me that whatever comes into Nigeria sells,’’ she said.
According to her, investors are interested in Nigeria because of its unique position in Africa and globally.
“Nigeria is key in the ECOWAS region; we are the gateway to ECOWAS countries; we have the largest market combined.
“So with this, investors are sure that they won’t only serve the Nigerian market but other counties like Ghana, Cameroon, Niger and others,’’ she said.
- Usman said that the role of NIPC in investment drive was crucial as it served as the Federal Government agency that promotes the opportunities available in the country.
