National coordinator, New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD), Princess Gloria Akobundu, has insisted that Nigeria, despite recession and misconceptions, remains Africa’s topmost investment haven for investors who are desirous of bountiful returns on investment.
She maintained that, with over 35 per cent returns on investment, the fourth across the globe, and a population of over 192 million people (UN statistics), investors could not afford to miss opportunities in Nigeria.
Akobundu told investors at the sixth conference of NEPAD member countries in South Africa, with an impressive presence of policymakers, that the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) 2017-2020, of the Nigerian government has the objective of bringing the economy out of recession and placing it on the path of sustainable and inclusive growth.
The NEPAD CEO, in a statement by her media aide, Nkem Anyata-Lafia, exposed the investors to the great investment opportunities in the Nigerian economy, particularly in power/energy, agriculture, petroleum and allied products, as well as transportation and solid minerals, all of which have high returns on investment.
