The head of the U.S. Consulate in Nigeria’s capital says U.S. support for Nigeria’s economy will continue given the African country’s demographics.

John Bray, United States consul general disclosed this on Monday, January 2018, after participating in the closing gong ceremony at the Nigeria Stock Exchange House in Lagos.

Bray says the U.S. private sector invests $8.1 billion a year in Nigeria and the country’s population of 180 million provides a tremendous base of consumers.

Bray said that businesses without a strategy for Nigeria don’t have an investment strategy for Africa.
