Some foreign investors, mainly from the United States and Latin America, are currently on a visit to Nigeria to familiarise themselves with the business landscape with a view to investing in the country now or in the future.

The tour, tagged Africa Walk, a concept of the Unicorn Group aimed to boost foreign investment flow to Africa, was essentially to afford the foreign investors opportunity to personally assess Africa against negative information that have discouraged them from exploring business opportunities on the continent, particularly in Nigeria, for decades.
