Gopichand Hinduja, an Indian business magnate, made a firm pledge last week to invest significantly in Nigeria’s rapidly expanding vehicle industry.
Last week, the billionaire Chairman and CEO of Hinduja Group of Companies met with Nigerian President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in New Delhi, India, and promised to spend billions of dollars in the country’s expanding automobile industry.
President Tinubu greeted Hinduja warmly, reflecting Nigeria’s determination to build strong alliances.
According to Tinubu, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, he is in India with one goal in mind: enticing investments to Nigeria with profitable chances for investors while simultaneously creating meaningful employment opportunities for Nigerians.
According to Ngelale’s statement, Tinubu affirmed, “We are here for business. I am here to assure our friends and investors that there is no bottleneck I will not break. Nigeria will become one of the most conducive places to make good profits and create lasting jobs.”
“With my support, nothing is 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.”
Hinduja conveyed his unwavering commitment, stating that his organisation trusts the president’s leadership and proven ability to identify and address challenges.
“We will invest billions of dollars under your leadership because we see you are already addressing the systemic problems.”
Hinduja confirmed his readiness to invest: “I am ready now to sign an MoU and begin execution. You tell me who to liaise with, and we will get to work immediately, particularly concerning bus and automobile manufacturing in Nigeria, amongst other areas.”
