In a bid to woo foreign investors into the country, the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio has assured them of the safety of their investments in Nigeria, adding that the floating of the naira by the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN will ensure the exchange rate stability for their investments.

The Senate president made this known when he welcomed the CEO of Jampur International Group FZE, Mohammed Shafiq, and investors in Mining, Power and Trading.

Restating the commitment of the Federal Government under President Bola Tinubu towards providing a conducive business environment for Foreign investors in the country, he said:

“I welcome you on behalf of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Nigeria is very safe and ready for investors. I am aware you are already investing in Nigeria in the area of mining, power & trading. Thank you for employing Nigerians in your companies”.

Akpabio added that the decision of the Federal Government to put in place a single rate for foreign exchange was a deliberate attempt by the government to further assure foreign investors of the safety of their investments anywhere in the country, saying:

“The current administration has been able to normalize our foreign exchange rate by having only one window. Investing in Nigeria is worth the while because of the returns on investments based on our population of over 200 million and the land mass.

“The President is ready to ensure that people get value for their investments, himself being a strong businessman. He has a track record of achievements in Lagos State when he was the governor.

“Lagos today has become one of the largest economy in Africa because of the foundation he laid.”
