Senate President Godswill Akpabio has stated that Nigeria is very safe and the Bola Tinubu government is ready to welcome foreign investors into the country.
Akpabio said this on Thursday while receiving a delegation from Jampur International Group FZE, led by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mohammed Shafiq, in Abuja.
The senate president also promised that the federal government would do everything legally possible to ensure that investors do not regret investing in the country.
Akpabio restated the federal government’s commitment to providing a conducive business environment for both local and foreign investors in the country.
He said: “I welcome you on behalf of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Nigeria is very safe and ready for investors. I am aware you are already investing in Nigeria in the area of mining, power, and trading.
“Thank you for employing Nigerians in your companies.”
Akpabio said the decision of the federal government to unify the exchange rate was a deliberate attempt to further assure foreign investors of the safety of their investments anywhere in the country.
Akpabio said: “The current administration has normalised our foreign exchange rate by having only one window.
“Investing in Nigeria is worthwhile because of the returns in investments based on our population of over 200 million and the land mass.
“The president is ready to ensure that people get value for their investments, himself being a strong businessman.
“I assure you that the federal government will do everything humanly possible to protect your investments by putting in place enabling laws on investments and security for its citizens and foreign investors.”
