Dogara urges investors to take advantage of fast growing sectors

Lawan Hamidu, Abuja

Foreign and local investors have been urged to take advantage of the ongoing diversification of Nigeria’s economy to invest in the fast growing sectors such as energy, solid minerals, tourism and agriculture.

The Speaker House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara made the call when he received the only black legislator in the Polish Parliament, a Nigerian, John Abraham Godson, who led some members of the ‎Polish/African forum to pay him a visit in his office, in Abuja.

Mr. Dogara, said government is clearing hurdles raised by corruption which had previously discouraged some countries from doing business in Nigeria.

“There is a new government in Nigeria , a government that is emphasising due process and fighting corruption in Nigeria, so the implication of that is that the cost of doing business in Nigeria will definitely go down as we combat the hydra headed monster of corruption in this country. I want to enjoin you, as you follow your discussion with the Polish business community, that you look into those areas like agriculture, solid minerals abound in Nigeria here, energy as well and then the issue of tourism. We hold in our borders, vast resort for tourism,” he said.

The Polish lawmaker John Abraham Godson sought partnership with the National Assembly to put modalities in place that will promote investment between the two countries

The Polish/Africa forum was formed to promote partnership with Nigeria.
