"A lot is being done in competitiveness and attracting foreign investments. A lot is also being done in agriculture and job creation," he said.
On power supply, Sambo said: "today in Nigeria, all citizens are aware and can feel an improvement in power supply and I can confirm to you as the chairman of the NIPP projects, that the new 10 thermal power plants we are building are already adding power to the national grid and each one is over 10 percent completed.
"We have achieved a lot to address terrorism and also crude oil theft. The visa policy has been approved by the council," he said.
