After participating in the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development, in Japan, President Muhammadu Buhari has departed the country for Nigeria.
According to his Aide on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, Buhari departed Yokohama, Japan, for Abuja, on Saturday, August 31, 2019.
Ahmad in a tweet said: “After the successful participation in the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (#TICAD7), President @MBuhari has departed Yokohama, Japan, for Abuja.”
Post-Nigeria could recall, that Buhari left Nigeria on Sunday, August 25, 2019, to participate at the International Conference on African Development themed: “Africa and Yokohama, Sharing Passion for the Future”, despite the threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
At the Conference, the President wooed Investors, saying that, Nigeria offers attractive investment opportunities with some of the highest “Returns-on-Investment’’.
President Buhari, who presented Nigeria’s Statement at Plenary Session Three, on “Public-Private Business Dialogue”, at the TICAD7, assured potential Investors of good returns, as a result of ongoing reform measures taken by his administration.
He identified power, transportation, infrastructure, maritime/shipping, agro-processing, mining, manufacturing, petro-chemicals, food processing and textiles, among others, as “key drivers to the diversification” of the Nigerian economy, as well as “priority areas that will drive our Economic Agenda”.
The President, therefore, maintained that he looks forward to “welcoming prospective Investors to Nigeria”.
