Nigeria-US Partners for Progress

Nigeria-US Partners for Progress Nigeria-U.S. Partners for Progress is the descriptive title for the U.S.-Nigeria Business Council, based in Washington, DC and founded in 2010.

Nigeria Economic overview and performance With a population of 154.7 million people, Nigeria is the largest country in Africa and accounts for 47 percent of West Africa’s population. It is also the biggest oil exporter in Africa, with the largest natural gas reserves in the continent. With these large reserves of human and natural resources, Nigeria is poised to build a prosperous economy, reduce poverty significantly, and provide the health, education and infrastructure services to its population. Over the last five years, Nigeria has been carrying an ambitious reform agenda. The most far reaching of those was to base the budget on a conservative reference price for oil, with excess saved in a special account. The economy responded with strong growth between 2003 and 2009, averaging 7.4 percent. The government used part of its oil savings to conclude the debt relief agreement with the Paris Club. The country then obtained its first sovereign rating at BB. The Federal Government reallocated all of the US$750 million fiscal space created, through the completion of the debt deal with Paris Club creditors, towards expenditures related to reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and towards reducing poverty with the Virtual Poverty Fund. --Source: World Bank. http://web.worldbank.org/WBSITE/EXTERNAL/COUNTRIES/AFRICAEXT/NIGERIAEXTN/0,,menuPK:368906~pagePK:141132~piPK:141107~theSitePK:368896,00.html

An NBC News column smeared the actor as a #conspiracytheorist because of his valid views on the 1963 JFKAssassination, thus constituting an attack, in effect, in effect, on NBC’s consumers, particularly those who care about evidence, law and other democratic values. #JFK @HeresTheThing

Nigerian Leader Shares Post-Election Vision With U.S. Diaspora, Experts, Investors

The newly reelected governor of Lagos visited the United States capital this week to describe his vision for the next four years to opinion-leaders from both continents. A highlight of the visit by Lagos Executive Gov. Babatunde Fashola was his remarks May 17 at an invitation-only reception hosted by the non-profit Constituency for Africa at Washington’s Army-Navy Club.

“Problems of law and order, the environment, education, health care, infrastructure, security—the same issues as any big city,” he said of his administration’s priorities following his re-election with a reported 82% of the vote to lead his nation’s most influential state. Lagos is also the name of the nation’s most important city, with a population of some 10 million.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria Robin Sanders, introduced him by saying her friendship and admiration has only increased through the years in observing progress under his administration and his plans for much more.

The Lagos governor spoke to an audience of about 35 at the club. The audience included Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States, Professor Adebowale Adefuye to a half dozen key members of the governor’s administration, plus prominent representatives of Nigerian-U.S. NGOs, consultants and investors. At the invitation of former Ambassador Sanders, I attended on behalf of Eagle View Capital Strategies, which organized “The Nigerian Investment Forum” in February at the National Press Club as part of client services in this field.

Jacqueline Adams, the executive editor of Africa.com, provided in-depth coverage in her column here, “A Man to Watch: Babatunde Fashola, Executive Governor of Lagos State.”

This May has been a pretty good month for Babatunde Fashola. Fresh from his re-election as executive governor of Lagos State, Nigeria’s business capital, Fashola won high praise in a profile in The Economist. He then traveled to Washington, D.C. for a series of high-level meetings with America business and government officials.

Whenever I am asked the solution to the problems Nigeria faces, I always say that no one has the solution, but there is something we can easily do to ease our nations burdens, and that is focus on education.
