Abuja (Flowerbudnews): Prof. Adesoji Adesugba, Managing Director, Nigeria Export Process Zones Authority (NEPZA) says the election of Mr Dele Kelvin Oye as President of the National Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), will elicit aggressive local and international investments’ promotion by the Organised Private Sector.
This, Prof Adesugba noted would help to rapidly grow the economy, a NEPZA statement by Martins Odeh, (PhD), Head, Corporate Communications, disclosed.
Adesugba stated this while congratulating the new president on Tuesday in Abuja as he (Oye) succeeded Chief Ide John Udeagbala to administer the association for the next two years. Oye is the 22nd President of NACVIMA.
The NEPZA Chief Executive Officer, explained that the entire NACCIMA family was confident of the new president’s management prowess and rich index in both local and international investments promotion.
He however, urged the president to challenge his members to take advantage of series of good economic policies of the Federal Government to increase their investment profiles, adding that the Free Trade Zones were among those impeccable investment enclaves that must be explored.
Adesugba, therefore, called on Oye to consider NEPZA as partner in progress, adding that NACCIMA’s unbroken cooperation with the Authority was required to jointly drive the country’s economy successfully.
“On behalf of the management and staff of NEPZA, I wish to congratulate you for a successful tenure of office,’’ Adesugba said.
Aside being a successful Legal Practitioner, Oye’s involvement in the economic landscape stretches beyond the shores of Nigeria as he currently chairs the Nigeria Turkiye Business Council (NTBC).
He is the Founding Partners of Consolidated Legal Practice and has been an attorney for about 29 years with specializations in securities litigation; business succession planning; employment law counseling/ litigation; commercial litigation; mergers and acquisitions; as well as general corporate transactions.
