A 10-man delegation of American businessmen and women yesterday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The leader of the delegation and United States Secretary of Commerce, Ms Penny Pritzker told Buhari that her team was in Nigeria at the prompting of US Barrack Obama.
Pritzker said they were in Nigeria to better understand the opportunities and challenges of doing business in the country.
She said her team was very optimistic about President Buhari’s administration’s commitment to security, good governance, fighting corruption, having reliable and regular regulatory policies.
President Buhari said his government would continue to welcome the support and understanding of the United States as it strives to achieve greater internal security and socio-economic progress in Nigeria.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who was at the meeting, noted that though Nigeria currently faced serious challenges, it was also a time of great opportunities for the nation.
