Nigeria’s government is real serious about partnering with the private sector in a bid to attract new foreign investment.
President Goodluck Jonathan has appointed the country’s richest man (and most of the world too) Iloko Dangote to be part of the country’s Economic Management Team.
The Economic Management Team is part of the government efforts to diversify its economy away from oil … and attract foreign investment.
Dangote contributes big time to the country’s economy. He employs over 40 thousand people and pays almost $100 million in taxes every year.
