Buhari-5President Muhammadu Buhari will lead Nigeria to the first forum of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC) holding alongside the meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) in Malta in November.

The CWEIC, formally known as the Commonwealth Business Council, has the specific mandate to promote trade and investment among Commonwealth countries.

The CWEIC is expected to host the business forum, which will offer opportunities for Commonwealth members to exchange and project their businesses. The heads of government, 1,200 business leaders and ministers from across the Commonwealth countries, will attend this event.

“The forum convenes Heads of Government, senior ministers, government delegates and the private sector in one place to discuss business opportunities and policy making,” Abdul Quadir Hamza, head of business development of the CWEIC, said in a letter appointing Puffa Nigeria Limited as its partner to lead the Nigeria business delegation.

Urging Nigerian business persons to take opportunity of the forum to project themselves in the light of the unhindered opportunities being given to entrepreneurs by the Buhari administration, Joseph Ambakederimo, CEO, Puffa Nigeria Limited, said: “The fight against corruption launched by the Muhammadu Buhari administration offers a special opportunity to all kinds of business persons to compete favourably among their local peers and international competitors, and the Commonwealth Business Forum offers all those who had been so marginalised in the past to project themselves.”
