President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday called on Nigerians to continue to patronise locally-made products and services to grow the nation’s economy.

Speaking while declaring open the 2019 edition of Lagos International Trade Fair organised by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Buhari stated the Federal Government was committed to its mandate of providing assistance that would guarantee the growth of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. The fair is to run till November 10 at the Tafawa Balewa Square.

News Agency of Nigeria quoted the President, represented by the Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Mrs Mariam Katagum, as saying, “I want to use this opportunity to reiterate my call for Nigerians to patronise made-in-Nigeria products and services.

“We must accept our new reality of promoting locally-made products as it is evident that this is where our New Nigeria will be realised. That is why I have constantly emphasised that we must be a nation where we grow what we eat and consume what we produce.

“This has wonderfully led to a massive nationwide agricultural re-awakening which without a doubt remains our most viable option for economic diversification as a government and nation.”
