President Bola Tinubu says within the first nine months of his administration, Nigeria has secured $30 billion worth of Foreign Direct Investments to support the country’s economy.

The President stated this during the 2023 Leadership Annual Conference and Award held in Abuja on Tuesday, March 5. 

Represented by Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, the President said;

“Since we assumed office in May 2023, we have attracted $30 billion in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) commitments into the real sectors of the economy, including manufacturing, telecoms, healthcare, oil and gas, and others.

 

Those investments have already started coming into the country. Just a few days ago, I was in Qatar on an official visit, where the Emir assured that a senior government delegation would visit Nigeria after Ramadan.

 

I have asked the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy to directly interface with the Qatari authorities to ensure that speedy progress is made.
