NOA tasks Nigerians on patronising locally made goods

Danchadi said patronising locally made products instead of foreign goods was a strategic means of encouraging local production for economic growth.

 

The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has advised Nigerians to always patronise made-in-Nigeria products in order to grow the economy and create more jobs in the country.

The Sokoto State NOA Director, Alhaji Maude Danchadi, said at an campaign aimed at increasing public awareness on Monday in Sokoto.

Danchadi said patronising locally made products instead of foreign goods was a strategic means of encouraging local production for economic growth.

He said that if made in Nigeria products were given adequate patronage, the economy would improve and more jobs would be created for youths.

The director said that NOA would continue to educate, enlighten and adopt different strategies to educate Nigerians on the need to patronise locally made goods and services

Danchadi said that the agency embarked on advocacy visit to district, village and ward heads to educate them on the importance of patronising locally made products.

” The sensitisation programme with the theme; “change begin with me; patronise made in Nigeria products” is to showcase available opportunities and products across the country.

” If we refuse to patronise our own products, it will crumble the economy, not the country.

“The need to patronise made-in-Nigeria products and services cannot be over emphasise as it is one major way to economic growth and development.

“The economy of any nation grows rapidly when people patronise and promote their locally made products.

“No nation can truly develop when its economy is at the mercy of foreign products and services and most developed nations are those whose economies are based on production,” he said.

According to him, Nigerian producers should take pride in their own product and also encourage Nigerian industries to be competitive by producing high quality goods.

”Some Nigerian producers engaged on deceptive rebranding to name their products with foreign levels and packaging which result discrediting of quality good produced in Nigeria, ” Danchadi said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that officers from Nigeria Customs Service (NIS), Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC) made presentations at the event.
