Report Any Nigeria Officials Demanding For Bribe - Tinubu Tells Qatari Investors



President Bola Tinubu on Sunday, acknowledged that there were some bad eggs in government who try to undermine investment opportunities, but empowered the investing community in Qatar not to hesitate in reporting any of his officials that demand bribe in the country.

Tinubu who is on a visit to Qatar, told the international business community that Nigeria is ready for serious business, assuring that his administration will deal decisively with any and all entrenched interests in the country who undermine investor confidence in the Nigerian economy.

He said he was poised to remove all bottlenecks standing in the way of profitable and legitimate enterprise in Nigeria.

The President gave the charge at the Nigeria-Qatar Business and Investment Forum in Doha, on Sunday.

According to him, Africa’s largest economy and its systems are being reformed and upgraded.

“For you Qatar’s captains of industry report any government official who demands a bribe or any form of inducement at any point in your business endeavour. I give you full assurance of your direct access to the President’s Office.

“I am here to give you the assurance that reforms are going on; forget about whatever you heard in the past. Whatever is the obstacle or problem that some of you might have experienced; it is in the past, because there is no obstacle in the future.

“Do not offer a bribe to any of our people, and if it is requested or taken from you, report to us. You will have access to me. Nigeria will no longer be defined by the past, but by what we do now and moving forward.

“Do not let perceptions become a hindrance to your will to invest. Nigeria is serious about revolutionizing investment promotion. We are removing obstacles today and we are going to continue to remove all obstacles.

“We have done so much within nine months. And I am assuring you, it is free entry, and free exit. Your funds will flow smoothly into and out of our country. Bring your investments,” the President stated.
