In his words â€œWe really appreciate what you have provided including the road. We are going to help the state to attract more Chinese investors here to do more businesses and invest here.
â€œThis is our first time here in Nigeria to start a business and since we are foreigners, we may not know the culture and regulation of this area very well, and we hope that you will understand us. Give us some understanding and we will do our best to do better. We have the confidence here and with your protection, we will go far in this business here.
