“For decades on the continent we’ve had investment forums that have been long and short, and short on action.


“It’s not a talk shop, it’s not a talk shop at all. It’s about doing deals,” said Oladokun.


The Investment Forum comes at a time where the country’s economic growth has been battling to grow, with growth being revised down to 0.5%.


It also comes at a time where unemployment has recently increased to 29.1%.
