Buhari receives manufacturers

We must avoid mistakes made in the past - Buhari
Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, August 16 welcomed executive members of Association of Africa Automotive Manufacturers (AAAM) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President while receiving Executive Members of AAAM, led by the chairman, Jeff Nemeth, said Nigeria as a country recognized her problems early enough, but remained potential for too long and so did not achieve much results.
President Buhari said that to reverse the trend, “We must avoid the mistakes made in the past by both government and manufacturers, and we are ready to get investment from all quarters, so that we can improve the lives of our people.”
He lamented that Nigeria failed to develop on automobile initiatives started in Bauchi, Kaduna and Ibadan, and depended too much on oil as mainstay of her economy
Nemeth said the association comprised potential investors who were ready to unlock investment potentials on the African continent.
“We are ready to offer strategic partnership with Nigeria. We want to promote investor-friendly regulatory frameworks and sustainable manufacturing. We will equally promote infrastructure development, job creation, and skills transfer,” he said.
