Security, education, and partnerships with organizations like CCA were also highlighted as essential components of his administration’s agenda.


In response, Florizelle Liser conveyed CCA’s commitment to supporting Nigeria’s economic growth, aligning with the eight priority areas outlined by President Tinubu’s administration. She invited the President to participate in CCA’s US-Africa Business Summit in May in Dallas, Texas, emphasizing CCA as a potential partner in enhancing USA-Nigeria trade, business, and investment.
