Senior Presidential Adviser, Femi Adesina has revealed the "other side" of the amazing success story of BUA Group under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity in an insightfulpiece titled "BUA GROUP: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STOR" wrote....
The common, and perhaps, popular narrative for political, baleful and pernicious reasons, is for people to say that the Muhammadu Buhari administration has run down the economy of the country completely since its advent in 2015.
“Your Excellency, in 2015, when you became President, we were on the verge of transitioning from a company focused on commodity trading to one that is focused on production using locally available raw materials. We were also constructing our first greenfield cement production plant in Edo State, which the Vice President commissioned. That project became a pivotal moment in our history as a proudly Nigerian foods, manufacturing, mining and infrastructure company because due to the success of that investment, we became even more convinced of the need to invest further in local production across various industries in Nigeria, in line with your charge to Nigerian businesses to do more in adding value to our God-given natural and mineral resources.”
