Osinbajo spoke on Monday at the commissioning of the Toyota Service and Research Facility in Lagos.

He reaffirmed the government’s commitment to partner with companies because private sector players “are better equipped and resourced to lead the development of the economy”.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) said the Buhari administration remains committed to the reforms being driven by the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC).

Osinbajo hailed the President for his directives, approvals and executive orders for the provision of infrastructure, power, roads, rail, and broadband connectivity.

“The private sector is expected to invest N298trillion or about 86% of the projected investments. This simply means that government must create the most conducive environment for private enterprise in Nigeria.”

He also highlighted other government interventions such as the Investing in Digital and Creative Enterprises programme(i-Dice), an over $600million facility by the AfDB, and the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme (NJFP).
