Let me express my appreciation for being invited to this beautiful event.

As representing a friendly country and people, allow me to emphasize our happiness to cooperate with Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC).

My personal experience with them has been very positive, particularly their dedication, hard work and focus to attract investors from all over the world, including from Turkey has been exemplary.

They managed to bring in significant companies from Turkey to introduce them to Nigeria.

We are trying to do our best to match the sincere interest in Nigeria to my country. In this regard, we have been doing a lot, but more needs to do done.

As the Embassy, allow me express that we have been quite happy to cooperate with NIPC and its wonderful staff.

Our cooperation in the future will continue to grow to live up to the expectations of our governments, business communities and peoples.

I would like to thank you again for inviting me to this beautiful event, and let me thank all who contributed to its realization.

And Dear Engr. Mustafa Bello, on behalf of the diplomatic community, let me thank you for your contribution and assistance to us.

As very successful former Minister of Commerce who was in office for 4 years and the longest serving NIPC Executive Director, Mr. Bello has signature on many achievements; like promotion of public-private partnerships and establishing a single window solution for foreign investors, which is an absolute must to promote foreign investment in Nigeria.

I would like to wish you and your family all the very best in your future career, good health and long life.

I wish that when time comes, I could also have such a nice farewell party with friends.

Thank you!
