Also, the World Bank noted that Nigeria made significant progress across several indicators; including starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts, and resolving insolvency.

Amb. Musafari articulated to H.E. VP Prof Yemi Osinbajo key points of Alpha’s investments and involvement in infrastructural and energy projects in Nigeria. Amb.
