The Federal Government has announced plans to lead a campaign on the patronage of Nigerian goods.
The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma, made the announcement on Monday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
He explained that the plan is expected to boost the nation’s economy, provide jobs and reduce the importation of goods into the country.
The Vice Chairman, Board of Nigeria Economic Summit, Asue Ighodalo, also asked the public to go for locally produced goods.
He hinted that the 2016 Nigeria Economic Summit would also focus on getting the support of Nigerians from all walks of life to patronise local manufacturers.
