Using Nigerian Products

A great call by Uchechukwu Ajuzieogu on the need for Nigerians to patronize Made in Nigeria products. Sure, local makers need to earn the moment for Nigerians to patronize them. Yet, Nigerians need to understand that without the support, those makers cannot advance. We are all guilty of this - it has to change.

"The need to patronize made-in-Nigeria goods cannot be overemphasized as it is one major way to economic growth and development. The economy of any nation grows rapidly when locally made goods are promoted through patronage, first by its people then through export.

It is, however, dispiriting to know that we obviously have been growing other countries’ economies through our over-dependence on imported goods, especially those which have local substitutes. Nigeria can easily experience a breakthrough in the quest for local content development and a stable, strong and advanced economy if Nigerians would patronize made-in-Nigeria products."
