Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has assured existing and potential
investors in Nigeria of adequate protection of their lives, investments and
property, as the security situation in the country was improving.
He was speaking at a bilateral meeting with President Jacob Zuma
of South Africa, late Monday in New York, on the sidelines of the 71st Session
of the United Nations General Assembly.
Buhari said Nigeria was working hard to diversify the
economy and expressed willingness to collaborate with South African businessmen
especially in the areas of mining and agriculture, for the mutual benefit of
the two countries.

The assurance comes amid strained relations between Nigeria
and some South African companies which in recent week have indicated they are
pulling out of Africa’s most populous country and until the ongoing oil
industry recession, its biggest economy.
In his remarks, meanwhile Zuma recollected his visit to Nigeria
earlier this year, which he described as “very successful.”
He added his country was interested in the promotion of
economic and trade partnerships between the two countries.
