PRESIDENT TINUBU URGES QATARI INVESTORS TO REPORT GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL DEMANDING  FOR BRIBE                                                                                                              03-03-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                    President Bola Tinubu has urged Qataris planning to invest in Nigeria to report any government official demanding a bribe or any form of inducement at any point in their business endeavours, assuring them of direct access to the President’s office.

The President assured international business community that Nigeria was ready for serious business, warning that his administration will deal decisively with any and all entrenched interests in the country who undermine investor confidence in the Nigerian economy.

Speaking at the Nigeria-Qatar Business and Investment Forum in Doha, President Tinubu pledged to remove all bottlenecks standing in the way of profitable and legitimate enterprise.

He told Qatari investors that policies were being reformed and upgraded, with the war against corruption and insecurity significantly strengthened.

The President stressed that Nigeria possessed vast opportunities in various fields, including oil and gas, and solid minerals, wondering how the countries will not become prolific partners in exploring iron ore, as well as steel production, and energy across the board.

“I am here to give you assurances in all spheres: tourism, hospitality, healthcare, and in many other opportunities that abound around us. Do not be the investors who miss out on the golden opportunity we present,” the President added.

Welcoming the Nigerian delegation in the presence of Qatari captains of industry, the Qatari Minister of Commerce and Industry, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Qassim Al Abdullah Al Thani, said his country would look forward to exploring opportunities in Nigeria, owing to the size of her population and market, as it seeks to prioritize new investments in low carbon initiatives, mineral products, petroleum chemicals, industry, and consumables.

“We look forward to working with our Nigerian counterparts to achieve our joint objectives in these sectors,” the Minister said.

Accompanying the President to the Nigeria-Qatar Business and Investment Forum were Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum; Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani; Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance, Mr. Wale Edun, Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Dr. Dele Alake, Co-ordinating Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Professor Muhammad Ali Pate, Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola; Minister of Trade, Industry and Investment, Dr. Doris Uzoka-Anite; Minister of Youth, Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim; and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources (Gas), Mr. Ekperipe Ekpo.

Also at the meeting were the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, Special Adviser on Energy, Mrs. Olu Verheijen, and the President of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Mines, and Agriculture (NACCIMA), Mr. Dele Kelvin Oye.
