“I am particularly impressed by this initiative which shows that a lot can happen when there is a partnership between the Government and the Private Sector.
“The Concept Amadeus/ Greek Partnership was one of the good things that came out of the EGRP Focus Labs which was organized by the Federal Government from January to May 2018.”
“The ERGP focus labs were one of the targeted initiatives of the Muhammadu Buhari Administration to drive the three pillars of its medium-term plan, namely: restoring growth, building a globally-competitive economy and investing in our people. It was also aimed at driving new investments that will create jobs for the people across the 36 states of the Federation and the FCT,” he said.
