President Muhammadu Buhari has assured the business community in Qatar that Nigeria would remove any impediment that can hinder investment in the country.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said Buhari spoke at a meeting with senior executives of Qatar Chamber of Commerce and some private businessmen in Doha on Sunday.

The president said security was essential to prosperity and development.

Buhari said: “Nobody invests without first knowing how secure a country is. That is why we have placed high premium on securing the country, because you cannot effectively manage a country you have not secured.

“My party campaigned on three main planks: security, employment generation and anti-corruption.”
