A former member of the House of Representatives, Shina Peller, has urged Turkish entrepreneurs and investors to engage with Nigeria’s growing market for a remarkable Return on Investment.
According to him, there are a lot of opportunities in the country, adding that Nigeria is home to some of the world’s most creative minds both within the continent and in the diaspora.
Peller noted that Nigeria with over 250 diverse ethnic groups and local languages represents the economic and cultural potential that exists across the African continent.
A statement on Wednesday by his Media Aide, Kola Popoola, said Peller disclosed this while delivering a keynote speaker at the 2023 Mindshift Empowerment and Employment Initiative in Turkey.
Describing Nigeria as the gateway to Africa’s world of creativity, Peller said Nigerian entrepreneurs are vibrant, innovative, and problem-solvers.
The statement partly read, “Highlighting some of the benefits Turkish investors stand to gain from trading and doing business with Nigeria, Honourable Peller stressed that Nigeria’s youthful population and growing middle class present a substantial consumer base for businesses to thrive. He added that the country boasts of abundant natural resources, from oil and gas to agriculture, offering immense investment potential.
“Also, the Oke-Ogun-born businessman cum politician explained that Nigeria’s diversity isn’t limited to its rich cultural heritage alone, but that it includes its economic and great entrepreneurial attributes.
“He disclosed to the Turkish entrepreneurs that their Nigerian counterparts do not only foster job creation and wealth distribution but also actively contribute to solutions for the continent’s most pressing issues, which he said include healthcare, education, agriculture, and technology.”
