IFC Plans $2bn Investments in Nigeria by 201

by Research 7. August 2013 12:42

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the World Bank’s private-lending arm has disclosed plans to raise its investments in Nigeria by 25 per cent to $2 billion by next year.

The Country Manager, IFC, Mr. Solomon Adegbie-Quaynor, who revealed this, said funds to be raised directly by the IFC or mobilised from other sources would be targeted at industries that offer competitive advantage to the West African nation.

The Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, had said in May the country needed to invest $10 billion on infrastructure annually to keep up with its rising population and expanding economy.

“We are partnering the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) and also looking at institutions to work with for activities in banks, power, gas, transport and agriculture,” Adegbie-Quaynor told Bloomberg.
Power would also be an important industry for IFC investment “as it is identified as largest constraint to private-sector growth in Nigeria,” he added.

The NSIA manages the country’s sovereign-wealth fund. The Sovereign-Wealth Fund (SWF) set up in October to invest savings made from the difference between budgeted oil prices and actual market prices also plans to fund the country’s infrastructure needs.

The Nigerian economy is forecast by the government to expand by 6.5 per cent this year. Nigeria needs annual economic growth of 13 percent to bring down unemployment, now at about 25 per cent, by 2020, according to the finance ministry.

The IFC signed an agreement with the NSIA last month to cooperate in developing financial plans to fund investments in target areas such as power generation and distribution and gas-to-power projects, through equity participation and selling debt, according to Adegbie-Quaynor.


The IFC is also targeting investments in agriculture, Nigeria’s largest employer, according to Adegbie-Quaynor. The lender is working with the government to identify ways to link producers to markets and boost output, he said.

ok i work for a company that does drug and alcohol testing so what im telling you is the truth not just my opinion. if you take your drug test and something comes up positive a MRO (medical review officer) will contact you from the lab. he will ask you if you are taking any meds. if you tell him that you are taking ultram he will ask you to fax over a perscription.if he determines that what you are taken is in your body at the normal amount then you will be considered a negative test result. your employer will only know if you test positive or negative they will never know that you were contacted by a mro. im not sure of the actual make up of ultram so i cant say if it will show up or not cause it also goes by how long you have been taking it and the way the persons metabalism absorbs the drugs.do not try to cheat!!! the cups have a special tempeture tab on it and it checks to make sure it is warm enough to come out of a human body.do not try to drink too much water or any drink that says they will clean your system this will make your test result a negative dilute which means there was too much liquid in your urine to determine whats in there. some companies see this as a positive test result as they think you are trying to hide something. if you need any additional info email me!
