The US Mission in Nigeria has hailed the growing US-Nigeria commercial ties as Burger King expands to Nigeria.
The US Mission Commercial Counselor, Jennifer Woods, welcomed the arrival of the iconic US brand in the country during the grand opening of Burger King’s first outlet in Nigeria, according to a statement.
Woods said, “With Africa’s largest economy and a sizable youth population that is connected to the world, US brands must consider Nigeria a critical market. And while these companies will benefit from expansion into Nigeria, so, too, will Nigeria benefit from their presence.
“The enthusiasm has been overwhelming, and this speaks volumes of the strength of American brands, and on a deeper level, the connection between our two countries.”
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, was quoted as saying, “We expect Burger King to roll out outlets in hundreds across the country.”
