Buhari Assures Investors of Safety

September 19, 2016, 4:13 pm

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday assured existing and potential investors in Nigeria of adequate protection of their lives, investments and property.

Speaking at a bilateral meeting yesterday with President Jacob Zuma of South Africa, in New York, on the sidelines of the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Buhari‎ said the security situation in Nigeria had become very much better and conducive.

Buhari also said  advances being made against Boko Haram insurgents went beyond degradation through just force of arms.

He said, "the de-radicalization process is also going on, and we are achieving some measure of success. Even suicide bombing is becoming rare, as the local people are themselves rejecting indoctrination by the insurgents."

 Buhari said Nigeria was working hard to diversify the economy and expressed willingness to collaborate with South African businessmen especially in the areas of mining and agriculture, for the mutual benefit of the two countries.

In his remarks,  Zuma of South Africa recollected his visit to Nigeria earlier this year which he described as "very successful.” 

He added that he was interested in the promotion of economic and trade partnerships between the two countries.

At another bilateral meeting with President Macky Sall of Senegal, both Buhari and the Senegalese President expressed their happiness at the good cropping season being experienced in their countries.

The two Presidents also reviewed the situation in Guinea Bissau and concluded that political leaders in the country should make sacrifices to guarantee peace and development of the country.
