Osibanjo calls for Private Public Partnership to develop Nigeria


Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has called on stakeholders in the private sector to partner with the federal government to develop the country.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Port Harcourt Dockyard liquid waste treatment plant in Rivers, on Friday, Osinbajo admitted that the “federal government cannot fund all public infrastructure.”

In a statement by Laolu Akande, his spokesman, Osinbajo stressed that a successful PPP leadership in major aspects of the economy and encouraging private capital investment was more strategic and important.

“Government cannot fund all public infrastructure,” he said.

“You are all aware of our Ease of Doing Business agenda, with the goal of making Nigeria one of the easiest and most attractive places to trade and invest in the shortest possible time.

“We are well on our way there.”

He called on other investors to follow in the footsteps of the company that built the plant, African Circle Pollution Management Limited, saying it was only through the collaborative efforts of the private and public sector that Nigeria can be fully developed.
