The Coordinating Minister for the Economy and the Minister of a Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala said that the present Government in Nigeria, led by Dr. Ebele Goodluck Jonathan was trying everything possible to sustain the growth recorded by the Country. She was speaking during the presentation by McKinsey Global Institute, of the study about Nigeria entitled: Nigeria’s Renewal: Delivering Inclusive Growth in African’s Largest Economy at the New York Palace Hotel.

Reeling out measures under Jonathan’s Transformation Agenda to turn Nigeria around, Iweala called on investors to come to Nigeria for the abundance of investment opportunities and favorable returns on investment.

Speaking at the event, the former Governor of a Anambra State, accompanied by his former Commissioner for Planning and Budget/Chief of Staff, Prof. Chinyere Okunna, said that President Goodluck Jonathan was on the right paths towards the growth of the Nigeria’s economy. He said that though most of the measures taken by Jonathan had long gestation period, but that very soon Nigerians would start seeing the impact of his many revolutionary polices such as the fruits of the privatization of power distribution, support for Small and Medium Enterprises, support for local manufacturers such as INNOSON Motor Manufacturing ltd, among other measures.

Speaking further, Obi said that the new policy on Agriculture was worthy of commendation as it has reduced the country’s import of agricultural produce. “The way we are moving on Agriculture, I have no doubt that Nigeria had made a bold move towards food sufficiency”, Obi said.
