The Presidential and other elections have come and gone, and as the incumbent is returned ,there is enough time and room for President Muhammadu Buhari to rejig his approach to economic management. Though he has done his best in his first term, the second should provide an opportunity for him to learn from his mistakes, deepen his government’s giant strides in areas as infrastructure, agriculture and health and come up with an economic blueprint that will address key challenge such as capital flight, brain drain, drought in manufacturing sector, poverty, unemployment ,insecurity, among other blights.
There is enormous opportunity for investors local and international to put their money in diverse sectors such as mining, real estates and other fertile , return-yielding sub sectors of the economy. But critical to this is the issue of security.
Government must as a matter of urgent importance find a frontal way to tackle the myriad of security challenges. This is a condition precedent for investment. In this edition, we look at the diverse sectors and their drivers- such as banking, and the opportunity in mining sub sector.
We also look at what Brexit means for Africa , and the volume of trade between the United States and Nigeria.
We hope to serve you better in subsequent editions.
Have a pleasant read!
