Olufemi Odebode, chief executive officer (CEO) of Legwork, says the federal government can encourage diaspora remittances by ramping up infrastructure in the country.

Legwork is a company seeking to create a niche market for Nigerians abroad to invest in the country.

Speaking with reporters in Abuja on Wednesday, Odebode said the federal government has already taken some steps to encourage remittances but more needs to be done.

The World Bank said diaspora remittances to Nigeria through official channels stood at $22 billion in 2017, $23.63 billion in 2018, and $23.81 billion in 2019.
