The Director-General of the NGF, Mr. Asishana Okauru said that the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement is the latest continental initiative to foster economic development in the continent.
He added that the awareness of states of this in Nigeria is very low. That is the whole purpose of this meeting today. If this agreement is to succeed in Nigeria, it is important that we domesticate this at the state level and that is exactly what we are doing now.
"Successful implementation of this agreement in Nigeria is dependent on supporting the sub-nationals to organize themselves into functional units," he said.
