The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi stated this while proffering potential solutions to the challenges to the economy raised members at the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, NACCIMA, at its 3rd Quarter Council meeting on 17th August 2022 at the LCCI Conference and Exhibition Center, Lagos.
Obi maintained that the most of these challenges are due to the human factor, which can be solved with the right leadership.
The Association held an interactive session with the Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi who stated his intention to use the opportunity to acquaint himself with the challenges that business operators are facing which militate against the growth of the Nigerian economy.
During the interactive session, the National President of NACCIMA, Ide John Udeagbala, remarked that the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, NACCIMA, is an Association of business people which focuses on advocacy, trade promotion and business development. The Association is also saddled with the responsibility to inform government on the effect of its policies on the private sector and to ensure that government continues to improve the business environment to ensure an ease of doing business. He concluded by stating that the objective of the interactive session was to ensure that the views and concerns of the Association finds its way into the political sphere, especially during this electioneering year.
