Nigeria Vows to Boost Investor Confidence and Combat Corruption: President tinubu's Assurances at Nigeria-Qatar Business Forum

President Bola Tinubu delivered a resounding message of commitment to international investors at the Nigeria-Qatar Business and Investment Forum held in Doha on Sunday.

Assuring the global business community of Nigeria’s readiness for serious business, President Tinubu pledged decisive action against any entrenched interests undermining investor confidence in the Nigerian economy.

In his address to Qatari investors, President Tinubu emphasized ongoing reforms aimed at upgrading Nigeria’s economic systems. He urged investors to report any instances of bribery or inducement by government officials, assuring them direct access to his office for resolution.

“I am here to give you the assurance that reforms are going on; forget about whatever you heard in the past. Whatever the obstacle or problem that some of you might have experienced; it is in the past because there is no obstacle in the future,” President Tinubu stated.

Furthermore, President Tinubu highlighted the appointment of Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as National Security Adviser (NSA), as a significant step in the fight against corruption and insecurity.

“We have a man who has won many global awards for anti-corruption as an anti-corruption czar,” President Tinubu remarked.

Emphasizing Nigeria’s vast investment opportunities across various sectors including oil and gas, solid minerals, tourism, hospitality, and healthcare, President Tinubu urged investors not to miss out on the golden opportunity Nigeria presents.

In response, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Qassim Al Abdullah Al Thani, Qatar’s Minister of Commerce and Industry, expressed Qatar’s eagerness to explore investment opportunities in Nigeria, particularly in low-carbon initiatives, mineral products, petroleum chemicals, industry, and consumables.

Accompanying President Tinubu to the forum were several Nigerian governors and ministers, including the Governor of Borno State, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum; the Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Uba Sani; the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu; and various ministers responsible for economic and industry-related portfolios.

The Nigeria-Qatar Business and Investment Forum served as a platform for fostering stronger economic ties between Nigeria and Qatar, with both nations expressing optimism about future collaborations and investments.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity revealed the details of the meeting on Sunday via his social media handle.
