President Bola Tinubu has informed potential investors that Nigeria offers a unique mix of prospects that they would not find anywhere else.

He also advised them not to be deterred by negative narratives spread by various sectors.

“Nigeria is an opportunity that is impossible to replicate or find elsewhere in any part of the world,” Tinubu said at the Nigeria-U.S. Executive Business Roundtable just after he rang the closing bell at the NASDAQ Headquarters in New York City.

In a statement titled ‘President Tinubu Rings NASDAQ Closing Bell and Promotes Investment at Nigeria-U.S. Executive Business Roundtable,’ Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, made the announcement on Thursday.

This marked President Tinubu as the first African leader to ring the closing bell at NASDAQ and showcased his efforts to attract substantial investments during the Nigeria-U.S. executive business roundtable.

Tinubu provided reassurances to potential investors by acknowledging the inherent risk aversion associated with investment capital.

In a deliberate effort, he facilitated the participation of accomplished Nigerian businessmen and public leaders to impart their expertise, experiences, and strategic blueprints.

“We have brilliant young people who both innovate and consume on a large scale. Our entrepreneurial spirit is a major part of what makes our market totally unique, aside from demography.

“Nigerians build businesses and Nigerian businesses partner with other businesses to conduct larger business. There is enough value to spread around. Be careful of what you hear about Nigeria.

“You may be dissuaded from a major opportunity others will take up. We are here for you. We will give you all the support you need to succeed and succeed abundantly,” the President assured the roundtable as he pointed out cabinet officials.
