MTN Nigeria has said that its participation at this year’s US-Nigerian Investment Summit (UNIS), is in furtherance of the telco’s commitment to partner with the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, to attract investors and investment to Nigeria.
The two-day summit, which kicks off today in New York City, U.S., is themed “Nigeria: The Future of Global Business”, and builds on the success of the 2018 maiden edition.
In attendance at the summit are the Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria, Olutokun Toriola, as well as the Chief Financial officer, Modupe Kadiri, during which Toriola will be speaking at the summit, highlighting opportunities in Nigeria with MTN Nigeria’s success story as a reference.
We believe in the many opportunities Nigeria avails investors, and our 20 year journey is a testament to the promise the country holds.
In a statement in Lagos, Toriola was quoted as saying: “We are passionate about the development of our economy. This can be seen in our unrelenting efforts in working with Government and institutions in different sectors to advance economic growth in our nation. We believe in the many opportunities Nigeria avails investors, and our 20 year journey is a testament to the promise the country holds.”
The US-Nigeria Investment Summit plays a vital role in attracting and facilitating business investment and job creation by raising awareness about a range of opportunities, and enabling vital direct connections between investors and the Nigeria economy.
The investment summit features senior government officials, C-Suite business executives, and other thought leaders.
MTN Nigeria promises to continue to advance its Good Together philosophy through strategic interventions, working with the people and government of Nigeria.
