He said his company, Kingdom Zephyr Africa Management Company has interests in most African countries in hotels, banking, cement production, oil and charity projects.
“I want to activate a strong relationship with Nigeria, in whatever area we may find suitable, and funds are not a constraint”, he told the President.
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin AbdulAziz Alsaud, who visited the President with his wife, Ameerah, is ranked by Forbes, Time Magazine, and many other influential publications among the most influential businessmen and investors in the world.
