The Senate is committed to enacting appropriate legislations to create attractive business environment in the country, its president, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has assured.
Saraki gave the assurance when the Chairman of Black Rhino Group and Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, led the chairman and co-founder of Blackstone Group, Stephen Schwarzman and his delegation, which included the president of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, visited him in Abuja.
He said the 8th Senate would concentrate on commercial aspects of the nation’s laws having successfully reviewed the criminal aspect in the 7th Senate.
“The Senate will give support in any way we can to make legislations that will make investing in Nigeria conducive. One of our priorities in the legislature is to look at the private sector and the business environment because some of our old laws have not been reviewed and that is why we are setting up committees to look at and make it more interesting and attractive to invest in Nigeria.
“In the Seventh Senate, we have done a review of the criminal aspect of the laws and brought them up to date and now we are dealing on the commercial side,” he said.
Earlier, Emir Sanusi said his firm, Black Rhino Group, which handles Africa’s infrastructure investments, is partnering with Dangote Group to make significant investments in the country.

On his part, Schwarzman, congratulated Saraki on his election, saying his company is partnering with Aliko Dangote to invest in projects in the country”.
“We are very positive about the impact we can make and as an outsider, we have seen the change, the government’s emphasis on power. It is very important from an outsider’s perspective”, he said.
