According to the President, Nigeria needs to diversify her economy and not rely on crude oil alone again.

The President, while declaring the occasion open on Monday at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, said he dreams of Nigeria with an export economy in goods and services.

“We need to diversify the economy so that we can produce the food we eat, make our own textiles, produce most of the things we use and create the right environment for our youth to create jobs through ICT,” he said.
