In his words, “The way to get the job out is this. I realised that if we are to rely on our public expenditure alone, we cannot create these jobs. What I did was to go to the US Black Chamber of Commerce and the National Chamber of Commerce in the US – people who know me too well and whom I have worked with. I am a board adviser for some of them and I have gone around the world with them on job creation,’” he said during the show.

“I told them, ‘Look, you know we have done these things before in many countries and I have been your adviser and we have done all of these things. In my country, I know the objective conditions that we can create for you to come to Nigeria and we can create jobs.’

“We sat down together and we looked at it in various sectors – agro-allied, alternative energy, infrastructure, health, and social services, new technologies such as block chain and crypto technology – we discovered that we can create three million jobs times 10 – 30 million jobs – using 2,000 companies and bringing the production that they are doing into the country.”
