President Jonathan made this known at the Nigeria Summit 2013, organised by the Economist in Lagos, on Tuesday. He stated among other things that the Federal Government was committed to creating an enabling environment for the private sector to thrive, stating that lots of activities were being achieved in rice, cassava and sugar production: “Our aim is to go back to agriculture not only to export raw materials but to process and add value. We are committed to creating job,” he said.
The president also noted that the government was aggressively addressing the problem of infrastructure in the country, stating that there were improvements in various sectors of the economy. Specifically, the president said power supply had improved tremendously, assuring that at the end of the privatisation process in the power sector, Nigerians would experience stable power supply.
