“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” ~ Aristotle
I am honoured and humbled by my re-appointment as Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari.

I am thankful to Mr. President as this offers me the opportunity to continue our drive towards a Zero Oil Economy hinged on the accelerated development of our non-oil sector as we expand and increase the presence of high quality Nigerian products and services throughout the world.

This will be enhanced by the implementation of the Zero Oil pillar of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan and buoyed by the recently launched National Economic Council Committee on Export Promotion.

I would also like to use this opportunity to appreciate the tremendous support of our parent ministry, the Federal Ministry of Industry Trade and Investment (FMITI), the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning, our international development partners and dedicated exporters and businesses.

I thank the staff of NEPC for their hard work and will count on their support towards achieving our vision for a fully diversified Zero Oil economy for Nigeria.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. So I begin! I am grateful, once again, for the opportunity to serve our great nation and look forward to building upon the work already underway.

Export Business...Tomorrow's Business.

Have you heard this? Many Nigerian exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting commodities to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, why don’t you get a practical manual that teaches the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers. It teaches export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? It is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on the link below:
