FG To Create Diaspora Investment Platform, Says Governor Sul

Abdullahi Sule

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State on Wednesday disclosed the federal government is ready to create an enabling environment for diaspora contributions and investment.

Sule stated this at the second phase of the Zumunta Association of USA Inc. Benevolent Palliative Project Awards at Radio House in Abuja.

The Association had presented palliatives and awards to 18 NGOs from 11 states (Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Gombe, Kwara, Niger, Taraba, Kaduna, Plateau, Lagos, and Nasarawa) and the Federal Capital Territory.

While commending the association’s patriotism, Sule said: "Your act of humanity will go a long way in facilitating the change we hope to see in Nigeria.

"Let me seize this opportunity to assure you that the federal government, on its part, will spare no effort to create an enabling environment that will protect and support its diaspora to excel in their various calling and in turn, to encourage them to contribute and invest their quota to the development of their fatherland.”

Zubairu Dada, the Minister of State Ministry of Foreign Affairs, urged the association to work with the Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) in actualising their goal.

NiDCOM chairperson, Abike Dabiri-Erewa lauded the association’s efforts to give back to its home country, stating it as a true show of patrotism.

Responding, Philip Moses, President of the Zumunta Association of USA Inc. said, “We encouraged trade and investment opportunities by facilitating face-to-face meetings between Nigerian entrepreneurs and their American counterparts.”
