By Aduragbemi Omiyale
On Tuesday, July 13, 2021, investors will have the opportunity to have vital information on the various investment opportunities in the privatisation programme of the federal government.
The Nigerian government to planning some abandoned national assets in order to raise funds to run the country and the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) is charged with the responsibility of offloading the identified items.
Recently, the federal government handed the National Theatre in Lagos to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Bankers’ Committee for rehabilitation.
The new team is expected to revamp the structure and turn it into a world-class facility. This will, in turn, boost economic activities in the neighbourhood.

The seminar is in collaboration with the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) Limited and the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) and the theme is Showcasing Investment Opportunities in the Federal Government of Nigeria’s Privatization and Economic Reform Programme.
