He further stated that Nigeria is a great place to put money.

He told the Indian businesses not to worry, adding that his team knows how to make the country rich through good plans and building things.

The statement quoted Tinubu saying, “Do not procrastinate. Don’t be frightened about investments in Nigeria. Bring it on. Ask your questions and make your requests. The trade and investment opportunities are enormous. I have a team, and I am the captain of that team, and I assure you that we solve problems.

Indorama Petrochemical Limited was said to have pledged $8 billion in the expansion of its fertilizer production and petrochemical facility in Eleme, Rivers.
