Highlighting the purpose of the summit, Financial Times Live stated; “Nigeria is characterized as a country with huge potential and tough challenges. The reduction in oil export earnings is at the heart of many of the country’s woes but it has also given renewed impetus for the government to implement reforms, strengthen economic resilience and diversify sources of revenue. The event will focus on how Nigeria can diversify from oil dependency, deliver long-term inclusive growth and realize its ambition to become Africa’s economic powerhouse.”
