From Emmanuel Iyoho
The speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, has advocated the need for countries around the world to focus on the potentials within Nigeria and indeed Africa as the world struggles to address challenges around global supply chains.
Gbajabiamila stated this while discussing the topic, Taking Action for a Resilient Global Supply Chain at the World Strategic Forum organised by the International Economic Forum of the Americas taking place in Miami, Florida, USA.
A statement signed and made public by his special adviser on media and publicity, Lanre Lasisi, noted that the panel discussion sought to look at the challenges facing global supply chains, how they were affecting businesses and economies around the world, and the solutions that could be put forward to address the challenges identified.
In agreement with Gbajabiamila, the senior vice president and chief operating officer of the World Trade Centre, Miami, Alice Ancona; stated that the world must draw lessons from the Covid-19 pandemic and look for alternatives around the world in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
The speaker led the Nigerian delegation, which was made up of the chairman of the House Committee on Media, MessrsBenjamin Kalu and Joseph Bello. They were joined by other legislators from Tanzania, Zanzibar, Uganda and Sierra Leone.
