Peter Obi speaks on strengthening Nigeria's economy

During his usual extemporaneous speech, the presidential hopeful stated that the 20 million Nigerians in the diaspora have the tendencies and capacity to help boost the Nigerian economy through investment.

He said:

“Indeed, if properly harnessed, the Nigeria Diaspora family can catapult Nigeria from good to great. Today, investors interest in Nigeria—as well as across Africa—is spurred by oil and mining companies interested in developing and exporting natural resources.
“But investors interest is increasingly motivated by other opportunities that we offer, notably in agribusiness (Nigeria and the 52 other African nations are home to 65% of the world’s arable land), infrastructure and manufacturing, technology, and the production of consumer goods.”
“We want this investment because this is what will help us create jobs, strengthen our economy even further, and improve the quality of life of our people. It is also good business sense for investors. Africa is the last frontier for smart investors and Nigeria offers some of the largest investment opportunities.”

He described the United States as the largest investor in the Nigerian economy despite all the challenges it has been going through.

Mr. Obi stated that the reason for this is because the multinationals in the U.S acknowledge that Nigeria is the biggest market to invest in and also because of its growing consumer base.

The presidential hopeful, however, promised that if elected, his government will ensure a sustainable investment inflow across the board.
