Tinubu back in Abuja after two-day trip to Qatar

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday returned to Abuja after a tow-day business trip to Qatar.
The trip was on the invitation of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

President Tinubu was received by senior government officials led by Vice President Kashim Shettima at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at about 6:37pm.

With the vice president were: the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila; Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister Nyesom Wike; All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman Abdullahi Ganduje and Department of State Service (DSS) Director General Yusuf Bichi.

In Doha, the capital of Qatar, the President engaged with the highest authorities, led by Sheikh Al Thani. He also took part in the Nigeria-Qatar Business and Investment Forum.

 

During the engagement, President Tinubu witnessed the signing of multi-sectoral agreements, having to do with the critical sectors of education, enterprise development, investment promotion, youth empowerment, mining, tourism and sports.

At the business/investment forum, Tinubu spoke to the Qatari business community about the vast investment opportunities available in Nigeria, with an almost unbelievable return on investment, assuring them of his administration’s resolve to make Nigeria the best investors’ destination anywhere in the world.

He had told his audience: “There is nowhere in the world where you will find return on investment at the level of what you will see in Nigeria; a massive market of over 200 million skilled Nigerians, always industrious and ready to work.

“We face some short-term turbulence at the moment, but we have a government today that reflects the dynamism and talent of the Nigerian people. We are implementing the right solutions. This team works collaboratively with each other and our partners. Nigeria is ready for serious business.”
