Nigeria has no business with China - Osinbajo

Acting president Yemi Osinbajo has called on Nigerians to support Made-in-Nigeria goods and join hands to support and promote industries located in Aba.

Osinbanjo said if Aba industries can be supported and developed, Nigeria will have no business importing from China as the local industries will be able to sustain the economy.

Osinbajo said: “Aba was very strategic and important to the country in terms of manufacturing and production.”

Vanguard reports that Osinbajo made this statement while receiving a delegation of some top functionaries of Abia State Government, Aba businessmen and industrialists led by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investments, Okey Enalemah at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday, February 28.

While commending Governor Ikpeazu, Osinbajo said: “Nigeria has no business with China if all hands are on deck to develop Aba as a major industrial Base.”

Speaking after the Acting President, Governor Ikpeazu stated that “If Aba is giving the needed and adequate attention, which include infrastructural and human capacity development, it has the potential and capacity as the SME capital of Nigeria, to position Nigeria as truly the giant of Africa.

“Our government is doing all we can do ensure the infrastructural turnaround of Aba, but we can’t do it alone, that is why we are thankful to the Federal Government for showing very strong interest in partnering with us to development Aba as the SME capital of our dear country-Nigeria.”

“It is our collective resolve to promote goods and services made in Aba, and we will not relent in the campaign. We call on Federal Government and multinational companies and individuals to, not only join us in the campaigns, but to also patronize made-in-Aba goods.”

Meanwhile, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, says he is an ardent patron of products made in Aba and all he is wearing are made locally.

The minister disclosed this in Umuahia on Monday, February 27, at the Federal Government’s town hall meeting and the launch of the national reorientation campaign, “Change Begins With Me’’ , in Abia.
