Why this issues
More international corporations are shunning Nigeria in favour of Ghana. Recently, Nairametrics reported that Amazon is about to situate its African Headquarters in South Africa, a multi-billion greenback funding that’s projected to create over 20,000 jobs each instantly and not directly.
Following its transfer to Ghana, Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey cited a lot of human rights-related causes for the selection of Ghana over Nigeria. Added to this are rising insecurity, stifling authorities laws and the gapping infrastructural deficit bedevilling Nigeria. Consequently, our nation is steadily shedding alternatives to draw international corporations that might be very instrumental in bridging its unemployment hole which is at present over 30%.
