The President, Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Dr Frank Jacobs has disclosed that the United States of America may reduce support in terms of grants and aids to Nigeria considering the conservative orientation of the Republicans.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, November 16, Dr Jacobs said that it was rather early to predict what the economic outlook of Nigeria would be in respect to the US election.
It is likely that the country may receive less material, moral and political support.
Policies and programmes of the Republican government might also not be favourable to some Nigerian illegal immigrants, based on the campaign speeches of the President-elect.
Jacobs noted that such immigrants, especially nonprofessionals, would be a burden on the country when they return.
According to him, Nigerians have contributed to the building of the American economy over the years, given that Nigerian professionals have been making waves in the US.
If such professionals return to Nigeria, they will help to develop the country in various professions.
Their activities may also help to salvage the nation from the current recession and build a virile economy.
