Vice president Yemi Osinbajo says the Federal Government is committed to creating the needed environment for more public private partnership deals that will help improve infrastructure and help bring the country out of recession.
The VP was speaking during his visit to the Nigerian stock exchange on Friday.
In its almost 40 years as a corporate institution, the Nigerian Stock Exchange has proved to be the vital link for private sector interventions.
The importance of the Exchange was re-enforced with the VP’s visit.
Vice president Yemi Osinbajo arrived the gallery in company of the chairman and the chief executive officer of the NSE Aliko Dangote and captains of the private sector .
He later rang the closing bell, Vice President Osinbajo spoke to journalists on his mission at the exchange.
As at June, the Exchange had about 180 listed companies. This paltry number in a major economy like Nigeria has been a worrisome issue, made even more worrying by the non listing of some privatized companies.
Everyone here is confident the Nigerian stock market can provide the needed platform to revamp the economy if properly harnessed.
