President Goodluck Jonathan has once again assured investors that the country’s climate was conducive for investments, just as he said Nigeria was winning the war against terrorism.
Speaking at the 14th meeting of the Honorary International Investor Council, HIIC, at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the President noted that the declaration of state of emergency in the North Eastern states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, has seen the country witness tremendous landmark in terms of security.
According to him, the remarkable support from the people of the affected states since the emergency rule was proclaimed was an indication that activities of the terrorists did not enjoy the support of the local population.
Jonathan said what seem a sectarian crisis in the country for the last few years, had nothing to do with religion, but are the activities of internationally-backed terror groups determined to destabilise the nation.
He therefore promised investors that his administration will ensure every thing possible is done to guarantee safety of lives, property, and investment, as he is not oblivious of the fact that a secure country attracts investments.
