The conference was put together by the American Business Council (ABC) in partnership with the Lagos Business School (LBS).

Symington said that citizens were greatest resources of Nigeria and without them, there would be no leader.

“I am here to let you know the greatest resource of this nation. As an ambassador, I have seen first hand the diversity of the nation as well as its potential.

“The most successful people you will remember think in terms of people.

“Their value for people is what makes them stand out, that is why I strongly believe that the greatest resource for this nation is you,” he said.
