“You cannot do everything because if you do so, you will not go anywhere as a result of lack of resources. You only have to pick some vital things and do them, and by so doing, you will make a complete change. I have a policy, and it is for a nation to change or develop,” he said.
The president also said Nigeria is safe for investors to patronize.
Speaking said this at the 3rd Nigeria Investment Summit organized by the Nigerian Mission to the UN and the African Business Roundtable in New York Wednesday.
Also in attendance were former British Prime Minister, Mr. Tony Blair, former US secretary of state, Mrs Condeleeza Rice, and National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ahlaji Bamanga Tukur.
Jonathan said his strategy in reviving Nigeria is to sanitize the business environment the same way he has sanitized the political process when he assumed office. He therefore urged foreign investors to patronize Nigeria, assuring them that his administration is committed to making it a safe environment for their businesses.
The President also urged investors on ground to work hard to create more jobs and opportunities, stressing that that could only be done when they encourage private investors.
