"People have always underestimated the Nigerian economy"~ Tonye Cole (part 2) - CPAfrica

"People have always underestimated the Nigerian economy"~ Tonye Cole (part 2)
Cole, again, believes that this could throw up further opportunities, as the government turns to the private sector to solve its problems. "Infrastructure has always been best developed by private organisations who can look into the long term, find a way to fund it, then create a model that makes that infrastructure make money and pay back," he says. "Where there is a will and an opportunity, we will go," Cole says. "Where we can find people who are brave enough to come with us." Finding finance for capital intensive projects such as power infrastructure and oil and gas production not always easy, even for established players like Sahara, Cole says. The expansion of stronger banking groups out of Nigeria and South Africa across the continent has helped, he says, but is not a solution in and of itself. Source africanbusinessmagazine Loading...
