Shettima at BRICS summit: Nigeria seeking international alliance for economic investments

 


Vice-President Kashim Shettima says Nigeria is seeking a partnership that provides opportunities for all to engage in trade, prosperity and shared progress with no marginalisation.

 

The vice-president spoke at the 15th BRICS summit held in Johannesburg, South Africa.

 

On August 21, Shettima departed Nigeria to represent President Bola Tinubu at the summit.

 

In a statement issued on Thursday by Olusola Abiola, director of information in the office of the vice-president, Shettima emphasised global governance reform as a necessity for partnerships that ensure inclusivity and sustainable development.

 

He said the outlined agenda of the meeting aligns with “the aspiration of the people we represent and the future citizens of a world that can ensure our collective prosperity”.

 

“We want a partnership that guarantees a world governed by acceptable rules and norms,” he said.

 

“We seek a partnership that provides opportunities for all to engage in trade, prosperity, and shared progress with no marginalisation based on geography, race and legitimate sovereign affiliations.”

 

 “These nations confront historical developmental vulnerabilities and challenges that are beyond their control.

 

“Thus, it is imperative for us to unite within regional groups and forge a novel form of international cooperation.

 

“This endeavour aims to foster global economic governance reform while enhancing the representation and voice of emerging market economies or developing countries.”

 

Shettima said Nigeria is committed to playing a major role in shaping global framework and governance in areas of finance, climate change, digital economy and post-pandemic recovery.

  1. Mr. vice President, this’s exactly what BRICS represents. It is left for the government which you’re the vice to do the needful so that, western countries will stop insulting the people of Nigeria to go and fight Niger coup plotters whereas, he’s a sovereign state. You must détache your policies from the unipolar system which are driven by the US and his NATO allies since the end of WW II, and this was when dollarisation dominated the world economy. This can no longer continue as a new world order is born -BRICS. Nigeria for instance, need to dump the US dollar and starts to negotiate trade deals with his partners in local currency. This is the only things can be done in order to revamp a dilapidated Nigeria economy. You must scrap dollar accounts in all commercial bank of Nigeria. When this is done, you will notice that the government will have enough funds to cater for other development projects across the country. Nigeria government must not allow WEF World Economic Forum dictate his line of economic policies because, they are after their interest. The BRICS refused to accept Nigeria candidacy to his alliance because the country is not economically independent and has questionable fiscal policies which is dependent on the dollars. It is shameful that, Egypt and Ethiopia were integrated into BRICS alliance and Nigeria could not be among them. This shows that, Nigeria still have an outstanding concern about the way and manner Nigeria is mal administered. Only BRICS can bring prosperity to Nigeria and not US and his NATO Allies.
