The Federal Government has said despite Nigeria’s security challenges, the country is not a war zone and is safe for investment.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, said this on Friday in Lagos at the Platform Capital Forum, organised by UNICORN Group.

Addressing the global audience, the minister said there was a lot of de-marketing going on in Nigeria, particularly outside the shores of the country.

“If you read about Nigeria, from outside the shores of the country you will think Nigeria is truly a war zone.

“I am glad that some of you have been in Nigeria for days and you can attest to the fact that indeed we have challenges in some parts of the country but Nigeria is not a war zone.

“Nigeria is not a country where Christians are persecuted by Muslims or where one ethnic group is being dominated by the other.

“Nigeria is safe for investment,’’ he said

Mohammed admonished de-marketing the country to refrain from the act, saying “we do not have any other country than Nigeria and no matter what challenges we have we must make it work’’.

However, he noted that despite the challenges facing Nigeria, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari was doing its best to reposition the country.
