Cavista Holdings Chairman Olajide leads US delegation to Nigeria, hold trade, investment talks

As part of the ongoing efforts to bolster trade and investment ties between Nigeria and the United States, Chairman of Cavista Holdings and also Chairman of the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) Board, Niyi John Olajide led a high-powered delegation to Nigeria to meet with President Bola Tinubu, various ministers, and heads of government agencies in Abuja.


The purpose of the trade mission is to understand ongoing economic reforms, as well as expanding U.S.-Nigeria business and investment partnerships.


President Tinubu expressed satisfaction with the Corporate Council’s dedication to fostering business connections between the United States of America and Africa.


”I am happy that the Council is interested in various segments of Nigeria’s economy. We are right in the middle of a challenging stage of our reforms. We have headwinds, no doubt, but we are not going back.


”We are challenged, and we believe we will overcome the challenges. I have a can-do attitude that must be translated into a must-do attitude. We have a good team, and we must remain focused to get the goal accomplished,” he said.


In her remarks, Ms. Florizelle Liser, President and CEO of the Corporate Council on Africa, urged President Tinubu to consider the CCA as a key partner in enhancing USA-Nigeria trade, business, and investment. She reiterated CCA’s dedication to supporting Nigeria’s economic growth across the priority areas outlined by President Tinubu’s administration.


The CCA trade mission, which ends on February 26 will also include visits to the Cavista Holdings Head office in Lagos, as well as meetings with business leaders in the private sector.
