“We are in a fiduciary role for the people of Nigeria, current and future. We are guided by this every day as we recognise the urgent need to leverage the institution’s mandate and fund to support the country’s growth agenda.

“We are committed to ensuring that Nigeria’s sovereign wealth fund consistently ranks highly in the league of state-owned funds in terms of transparency, governance, and performance.

“Our foray into some new terrains underscores our resolve to ensure that optimal returns are generated through responsible investing.

“For emphasis, we have, on behalf of the present and future generations, expanded our focus sectors to include climate finance, renewable energy, innovation, and technology.


“This is in addition to the priority sectors we had maintained over the years namely agriculture, motorways, power, healthcare, and gas industrialisation.”
