President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, on the sidelines of his official visit to The Hague, Netherlands, met with Chief Executive Officers of Dutch companies.
He assured them of a safe and secure operating environment where their investments would be safe, and yield handsome returns.
A statement endorsed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president said: “Stability was the first thing in our campaigns. You have to secure a country first before you can efficiently manage it. Before businesses can thrive, security is paramount. That is why we lay so much emphasis on securing the country.
“After security, our next emphasis is reviving the economy, and then, fighting corruption.”
He commended the many Dutch-owned companies operating in Nigeria for dealing fairly, noting that with many of them, “the relationship dates back more than two generations, and it is now almost a blood relationship rather than commercial.”
Urging the business men to build factories in Nigeria and source raw materials locally rather than wholesale import, Buhari said he was impressed with the economic cooperation between Nigeria and Netherlands.
