ABUJA—FORMER Senate President, Ken Nnamani has warned Nigerians to beware of desperate politicians without any second address.
This came as oil magnate, Chief Emeka Offor of the Chrome Oil and Gas alongside Senator Nnamani and Argentine partners in the oil and gas business met behind closed doors with Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking to State House correspondent after the meeting, the former Senate President who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, advised struggling politicians to have second address.
He said he was part of the meeting to observe how government would receive the investors, stressing that the government was receptive.
According to him, “This; the government is quite receptive according to the vice president; because they have made other investments in Nigeria and they are continuing.”
On politicians who do not have any other business apart from politics, Nnamani said, “I think our problem is that if you enter politics and you have no second address; the chances of your getting in trouble is very high. I am here strictly on business, they are talking about billions of dollars investment in Nigeria and that tells the confidence his company has in our country.
Also speaking, Chairman of Chrome Oil and Gas, Chief Emeka Offor, said he brought foreign investors from Europe to meet with the Vice President on the investment opportunities in oil, gas, power and electricity.
Chief Offor said: “We brought a major investing group from Europe; that’s why we are here; we are looking into investing in oil and gas, electricity power and others. They have seen that the atmosphere in the country is conducive for investments.”
