Tinubu, who arrived in the South Asia country on Tuesday for the G-20 leaders’ summit, said his administration would break every bottleneck that impedes their ease of doing business in the country.

The president added that he was in India to attract investments to Nigeria as well as create jobs for Nigerians and new revenue opportunities for the country.

He said: “We are here for business. I am here to personally assure our friends and investors that there is no bottleneck that I will not break. Nigeria will become one of the most conducive places on earth to make good profits and create lasting jobs.

“With my support, there is nothing standing in your way of enjoying the unrivalled opportunities presented by our massive market and the ingenious and hardworking nature of the Nigerian people. We are open for business.”

According to the statement, Hinduja thanked Tinubu for his cooperation, saying he is confident that the president’s efforts as Lagos state governor would be replicated in his administration as the nation’s leader.

Tinubu had earlier departed Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, for the G20 summit expected to take place from September 9 to 10 in New Delhi, the Indian capital.
