The former governor had on Wednesday, December 4, via his official twitter handle, touted Fintech as an opportunity haven.
Saraki disclosed that he was in New York City, meeting the supposed venture capitalists who, according to him, had shown interest in Nigeria.
Saraki said, “In NYC for a series of meetings with Venture Capitalists who have shown great interest in the fintech space in Nigeria.”
