Written by on April 27, 2022
The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has urged Nigerians to patronise made-in-Nigeria goods and services as a major way to enhance economic growth and development of the country.
The Akwa Ibom State Director of NOA, Mr Enoh Uyoh, said this during a sensitisation campaign on made-in-Nigeria products and services in Uyo on Wednesday.
Uyoh said that as good citizens, Nigerians should change their orientation from foreign products and patronise locally made goods and services to develop the local economy.
He reminded Nigerians that economy of any nation grows when locally made products are promoted and patronise by its people.
The director added that patronising local products and services serves as a sustainable drive towards attaining industrialisation and leeway out of economic doldrums.
He charged government officials to show good examples by patronising homemade products and services to encourage local manufacturers.
Uyoh, however, said that lack of steady power supply in some parts of the country was major challenge for business outfits to produce maximally.
