‘Buhari’s government lack direction’ – Chief Aderinokun reacts as Shoprite and Twitter snub Nigeria
Renowned philanthropist and politician in Ogun State, Chief Olumide Aderinokun suggested that the Federal Government-led by President Muhammadu Buhari are chasing foreign investors out of Nigeria with their ‘scary’ policies.
Chief Aderinokun’s statement came after Shoprite concluded plans to leave Nigeria this year and Twitter’s decision to ignore the country and have its African headquarters in Ghana.
With Shoprite ranked as the biggest shopping mall in Nigeria with outlets in each major cities across the country, Aderinokun frowned at how the government’s incompetence would make thousands of people jobless and also make tech-savvy youths miss working opportunities if Twitter – one of the most popular social networking sites in the world – had moved into the country.
“They lack direction and at this point, I don’t think the government know what they are doing,” he said.
“If you see the policies drafted by the government, especially from the Central Bank of Nigeria it scares investors.”
The 49-year-old real estate mogul who has been helping people in Ogun State Central through his foundation – Olumide and Stephanie Aderinokun Foundation, suggested that the government should be doing more for Nigerians with the resources in their hands.
