In contrast to the unfavorable impressions of Nigerian youths held by the international community, Dr. Stanley Uzochukwu, a young Nigerian investor, argued in his remarks to American and African business leaders at a CEOs Summit in the United States that ordinary Nigerian youths are hardworking and making waves in various spheres of life.
Uzochukwu, one of the invited speakers from the African continent, made the comments during his lecture at the Liberty University Business School-organized global CEOs summit in Virginia, USA.
The CEO of the Stanel Group stated that while he was aware of the damaged reputation that Nigeria had suffered due to some bad apples in the international community, they did not represent the character of the average Nigerian.
As you are aware, I am from Nigeria, a nation that epitomizes the paradox since, despite its evident economic and security problems, it continues to rank among the world’s most endowed countries in terms of human and natural resource capital. Some of the most self-assured, successful, and creative young people you’ll ever meet call this place home.
“I am aware of the unfavorable impression that our country has received from a few of my perfidious brothers and sisters in the world community.
I assert to you, however, that they in no way reflect the character of the typical Nigerian.
He spoke about the commercial opportunities in Nigeria and informed the business executives that his nation serves as a hub for foreign investors.
