The British Security Industry Association’s (BSIA) Export Council welcomed Mojisola Fayokun, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Nigeria’s trade development manager, to their section meeting yesterday to discuss security opportunities in the country. In an excellent presentation, Mojisola outlined the various opportunities available for the UK security industry in Nigeria, ranging from the financial and construction industry to the energy sector. With the economy proving stronger compared to this time last year and the country experiencing a consumer middle-class boom, Nigeria is a country that the security industry is beginning to target.
Paul Ramsay, BSIA Export Council Section Chairman, comments: “It was a pleasure to have Mojisola join our meeting. Her presentation was very well timed as Nigeria is developing as a strong emerging market, making this the ideal time for the security industry to consider exporting to the country in order to build lasting, fruitful relationships.” Caroline Strickley, BSIA Export Services Executive, says: “Mojisola delivered an excellent and thorough presentation which provided valuable information to our Export Council. Several of our members already export to Nigeria and with the country’s export levels up by 41.7%, I’m sure it will be a market that more of our members will be considering.”
