Significant growth in non-oil sector is creating thousands of jobs – Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria, is delighted that the significant growth in the non-oil sector is creating thousands of jobs across the country.
He said this during a meeting with a Qatari business delegation led by the former Emir, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
“As you are aware, Nigeria just exited its worst recession in more than two decades. We have more than doubled our foreign reserves,” he said in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
“We are winning the war against corruption, we are developing our infrastructure, and we are enforcing the rule of law. As a result of this, we are seeing significant growth in the non-oil sector, which is creating thousands of jobs across the country.”
Buhari also praised the rise in foreign private investments in the country, owing to the success of his administration’s economic agenda.
He described the Federal Government’s economic agenda as one designed to move Nigeria from over-reliance on crude oil and food importation.
The President told the delegation that, in the last two years, the policy has turned the nation into one of the most attractive investment destinations in Africa.
