Mr Mustafa Bello, the Executive Secretary of the commission, said this on Monday in Abuja while briefing journalists on the importance of using social media to attract investors to Nigeria.

He said the use of social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Google would enable the commission to spread information concerning the agency locally and across the globe.

Bello said the commission would target about 10 million followers from the social networks in addition to the five million already captured.

He said that the use of social media would enhance awareness through sharing information on investment opportunities with both foreign and local investors.

Bello said that the networks would create real-time interactions to provide on-the-spot response to investors’ enquiries.

He listed the benefits to be derived by NIPC from the networks to include improved social signals, assistance in nation building, word – of – mouth advertisements, and increase in investors trust.(NAN)
