President Muhammadu Buhari congratulates BUA chairman, Abdul Rabiu on reappointment by President Emmanuel Macron

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Abdul Samad Rabiu, chairman of BUA Group, on his reappointment by French President Emmanuel Macron as President of the France-Nigeria Business Council.

The President commended Rabiu for his crucial role in moving the objectives of the organization launched a year ago forward, as well as for maintaining the faith and confidence of members of the strategic Council.

Under his leadership, the Council has made significant progress in plans by some of Nigeria’s largest banks to establish subsidiaries in France, as well as BUA’s partnership with Axes France to build a 200,000bpd refinery in Akwa Ibom State, among other things.

President Buhari assures the Chairman of BUA and the Pioneer President of the Council of the Federal Government’s unwavering support as top business leaders continue to build strategic partnerships aimed at improving business relations between the two countries and supporting the government’s economic program in the areas of infrastructure development, agriculture, power, job and wealth creation.


The President reiterates that the priority of this administration’s economic diplomacy is bringing foreign investments into the country, with the average Nigerian benefiting greatly.

As a result, he assures Nigerians and all foreign policy stakeholders that, after reaping the benefits of major investments in the country over the last seven years, his administration will continue to aggressively promote Nigeria as a preferred and attractive destination for international investors.
