The Namibian government yesterday extended an invitation to the Nigerian government and its private sector to invest in Windhoek.
The Namibian High Commissioner to Nigeria and Ghana, Selma Ashipala-Musavyi who made the call, also urged Nigerians to take advantage of the flourishing Namibian tourism industry and invest in that country.
Speaking during a visit to LEADERSHIP’s corporate headquarters in Abuja yesterday, Selma Ashipala-Musavyi said her country was ready to showcase the vast investment opportunities which Nigerians could take advantage of.
She assured that Nigerians’ investment in Namibia’s tourism, agriculture and infrastructural development could only spell a win-win situation, and said: “We are looking at areas where both countries can share experiences and expertise.
It’s going to be a win-win situation. In terms of transport infrastructure, we are connecting with our neighbours through roads and railways. We are looking at a huge market in this area in Nigeria.”
The ambassador meanwhile disclosed that Namibia was the second largest tourism destination in Africa, and said it was a rare privilege serving in Nigeria.
According to her, “After 20 years in the foreign service in European countries, I’ve decided to come to Africa and I chose particularly Nigeria.”
