The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Nyesom Wike, says the federal capital, Abuja, is safe and free for foreigners to conduct their businesses.

Wike stated this when the Ambassador of Poland to Nigeria, Mrs Joanna Tarnawska, visited him in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said that the security in the city had significantly improved and safe for everybody, including foreigners, to carry out their businesses without fear.

“We are happy to make sure all the foreigners are free to carry out their businesses.

“Abuja is the capital, and you can see how safe it is.  It is one of the lovely cities that everybody will want to visit,” he said.

The minister, who described the relationship between Nigeria and Poland as cordial, expressed FCT Administration’s willingness to collaborate with Poland in developing its agriculture sector.

He explained that the partnership would enable the Administration to empower the teeming youths with employment opportunities in the agricultural sector.

He added that job creation and security were among top priorities of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

Wike said that Poland could arrange for some of its investors to set up large farms in Abuja that would employ the youths, and eventually owned the farms in due course.

Earlier, Tarnawska, said she had been in Nigeria for over five years as Ambassador of Poland, and described the country as a very interesting place to live in.

She explained that the visit was to assure the minister of the continued bilateral relationship developed many years ago.

She said that the discussion with Wike would continue to consider new avenues of cooperation for mutual benefits. (NAN)
