Hi Priscilla

I haven’t done a survey, so l can only say from l saw all around. So it won’t be the accurate market picture but a pointer. So with all potential of errors, I’m sticking my neck out to say:
1. Doctors
2. Engineers
3. Finance professionals
4. Good legal minds

Above all expats who’re willing to invest in enterprises there. Generating employment for locals & financial benefits for the expats themselves. Nigeria is very rich in resources & raw materials. So if there r enterprising expats , who can work in Nigeria,they can try converting raw materials to value added products.
