– Unveils Pan-Africa Business and Investment
Foremost Yoruba monarch, Ooni of Ife ,Oba Enitan Ogunwusi has met with the Kenyan President William Kipchirchir Samoei Arap Ruto CGH where he unveiled his investment initiatives.
According to him “Africa is the most appealing continent, with immense natural fortune and untapped human capital that are altering the global workforce, trade, and investment. I’d like to pay special tribute to President William Kipchirchir Samoei Arap Ruto CGH for demonstrating the oneness of Africa and the unrivalled special reception he accorded me and my entourage during my official trade and investment visit to the Republic of Kenya.
“I’m thankful for the demonstration of his special commitment to push for the inclusion of the traditional institutions as enablers of good governance in Africa as I unveiled the Ooni Ojaja Pan-Africa Business and Investment Initiative with a large contingent of entrepreneurs across Africa. It is clear that we must consciously expand our economic engagement with unprecedented access to markets between our two countries.
“Nigeria needs Kenya, and Kenya needs Nigeria. Our ambition is to develop the most ambitious ties that will propel us to sell goods and services more easily across borders while our children can pursue opportunities across Africa without barriers of immigration and unfriendly movement policies.
“The borderless African continent is an unexploited asset that is critical to unlocking the economic potential of African countries. The vision of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is one of the flagships for the continent’s shared wealth and economic boom. It is a game changer that can provide a tariff-free framework that should have been in existence since 1957, when Ghana became the first African country to achieve independence from colonial rule. It is time to build the “Africa that We Want,” not as a slogan, but as an epic movement that restores Africa’s honour, pride, and reverence, from aid to trade.” Oba Ogunwusi said .
