The CEO, Mrs. Uju Uzo-Ojinnaka, says the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) will increase the level of trade in the African continent. Uju also said that Nigeria’s signing into the AfCFTA agreement was a welcome development, pointing out that African countries incur enormous losses due to difficulties in intra-African trade. “If it goes well, it is good not just for Nigeria, but for the whole African continent. “
The ECOWAS single currency has been signed for a long time, but to do trade between Nigeria and Ghana is extremely difficult and we believe this agreement would address the situation,” she said.
