Mr. Ohwofa also said that the global return on investment in Nigeria was the highest in the world today.

The Freedom Organisation of Nigeria, FON, said on Monday in Abuja that the just- concluded World Economic Forum for Africa, WEFA, had attracted over $68 billion investments in Nigeria.

Frank Ohwofa, the Chairman of the nongovernmental organisation, said in Abuja that the investment drive would cover all sectors of the economy.

Mr. Ohwofa also said that the global return on investment in Nigeria was the highest in the world today.

According to him, it is worthy of note that this administration has recorded a milestone by making Nigeria the largest economy in Africa and the most preferred investment destination in the continent.

“The state of the economy of our country is on a good footing internally, externally and globally.

“The World Economic Forum for Africa has just been successfully concluded in Abuja with over 68-billion-dollar investments already coming into various critical sectors of the economy.

“All eyes of global investors are on Nigeria and all that Nigeria can offer, and the return on investment in Nigeria is the highest in the world today.”

He commended the Federal Government for its efforts at ensuring the rescue of the abducted Chibok school girls.

He expressed optimism that the girls would be rescued with the support of all.

“We want to commend the Federal Government for what it has shown to Nigerians, and the international community for its decisiveness to bring insurgency and terrorism in Nigeria to an end.

“The new collaboration with other countries has further demonstrated the administration’s commitment to bring a lasting solution to insecurity in the country.’’

According to him, the organisation will continue to support the president to end the insurgency in the country.

Mr. Ohwofa urged politicians who have been using insurgency to heat up the polity to desist forthwith.

He said that the “four years of President Jonathan will efflux in a twinkle of an eye, but the transformation the duo would have brought to Nigeria will last forever.”

The organisation is seeking to create awareness on good governance and promote democratic culture in the country.
