Nigeria home to world’s most creative minds – Peller

The Ayedero of Yorubaland and former member of the House of Representatives, Hon Shina Peller, has declared that Nigeria is a country of boundless potential and home to some of the world’s most creative minds.

Hon. Peller who said this while speaking as the host of the Turkiye-Nigeria Business and Investment Summit in Lagos stated that this is contrary to what is being perceived wrongly by some people from other parts of the world.

The former lawmaker said every Nigerian must see the task as a priority and his/her civic responsibility, adding that Turkish investors stand to gain from doing business with Nigeria considering that Nigeria is a country with over 250 diverse ethnic groups and local languages which represents the economic and cultural potential that exists across the African continent.

The Ayedero of Yorubaland added that Nigerians are resilient, focused, innovative, problem-solvers who adapt to situations easily and that Nigerians and Turkish people shared similar attributes.

The President of the GOTNI CEOs Leadership Council said Nigeria is being perceived wrongly in a negative way by many who have little or even no knowledge about the country, hence the need for all Nigerians to consider re-writing the country’s story in a positive way.

Assuring the Turkish investors that they will never regret doing business with Nigeria, the former lawmaker stated the significance of fostering strong bilateral relationships between countries, adding that collaboration and partnerships are key drivers of economic growth and prosperity.
