Nigerians who are highly educated, skilled are the asset Nigeria wields over others – Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has told international investors that the people of Nigeria, who are highly educated, highly skilled, and naturally industrious are the primary asset and advantage the country wields over other nations in the global race for new investments beyond the country’s natural resources.

The president spoke in Berlin, Germany on Monday at a panel discussion titled, “Fostering local value chains and investments in Africa – The role of the German private sector” at the G20 Compact with Africa Economic Conference, hosted by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

President Tinubu said that while promoting the rule of law was crucial for attracting foreign investments, Nigeria’s energetic youth population and well-educated populace represented the greatest incentive provided to investors toward the mutually-beneficial replication of China’s economic resurgence.

“We are dogged in our pursuit of natural gas development today, in tandem with hydrogen production for tomorrow. The world knows Nigeria as a leader in the energy sector. Our vast gas deposits and business-friendly environment make us an attractive investment destination. But we are going a step further now. We are creating fiscal responsibility and tax reforms as we reform our financial institutions to expeditiously accommodate foreign investments.

”We are eager and ready to partner with you. We have the youngest, largest, and most vibrant youth population in Africa. Equally, we have every ingredient required in the making of a modern economy: a well-educated population, a massive market, and the political will to bring it all together under my leadership.

“Africa has moved beyond the false past notions of business disincentivization and poor adherence to the rule of law. We now fully recognize the nexus between the inflow of investor money and the sanctity of contracts. We want to partner on the basis of who we are and what we do, rather than on the basis of long-held misconception,” the president said
