He revealed this while addressing journalists immediately after a visual business conference with some foreign investors.
According to him, the nation lacks the security and infrastructures to attract foreign investors into Nigeria and that is where we keep getting it wrong.
He added that Government agencies bottleneck, corruption, insecurity, unwanted illegal or local taxation by Customs, NPA, NAFDAC are other causes of the distraction of foreign investors to Nigeria.
His words, “Government agencies bottleneck, corruption, insecurity, unwanted illegal or local taxation by Customs, NPA, NAFDAC and inconsistent government policies among others are the causes of distraction of foreign investors to Nigeria. You cannot imagine where an investors’ goods that must have been legally cleared at the nation’s port only to be stopped at every polls by either Custom Officers, NAFDAC or Nigeria Standard Organisation demanding for one documents or the others. You will see investor paying over and over for goods that have already been legally cleared at the wharf.”
