Nigeria, boasting a population of over 200 million, stands as Africa’s economic powerhouse, offering a substantial consumer base that entices businesses and investors seeking opportunities in the region. Despite this allure, Nigeria’s economy has faced challenges in recent years, with reforms such as the removal of fuel subsidies and currency devaluation aiming to stimulate growth but yielding limited success.

The departure of notable companies like Shoprite Holdings Ltd., Procter & Gamble (P&G), GlaxoSmithKline, and Equinor reflects the struggles faced by businesses in navigating Nigeria’s economic landscape. However, Wiese remains optimistic about Nigeria’s long-term prospects, anticipating the return of major players to the market.

Wiese acknowledged the cautious approach adopted by foreign investors, including those from South Africa, who view Nigeria as a promising but evolving market. He suggested that waiting for economic stabilization and favorable government policies would be prudent before making significant investments in the country.
