The businessman said the Nigerian leader facilitated an agreement his company — Granite and Marble — signed with SBM China to develop Africa’s largest mining processing plant in Abuja.

“That agreement was signed in 2016 during President Buhari’s maiden trade mission to China where I was a proud member of the presidential delegation,” Ayom said.

He said investors should explore the advantages provided by China to diversify the economy, adding the low cost of credit from the Asian country is an incentive that must not to be missed.

“Nigeria has a lot to benefit in its industrialization drive by sticking with China which is now the workshop of the world,” he said.

He said young Nigerians should channel their creative energies towards uplifting the country rather than engaging in vices that tend to destroy the image of the country.
