Gov Ikpeazu Delivers Made In Aba Shoes To Former President Obasanjo

The Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has delivered pairs of made in Aba shoes to former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, at his Hilltop Mansion home in Ogun State.


The former President, had at the 2016 Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Forum in Lagos, ordered for made in Aba shoes, through Governor Ikpeazu, who is also the "Chief Marketing Officer" of Made-in-Aba goods.





Speaking while delivering the shoes, Governor Ikpeazu said: "Sir, you made an order for made in Aba shoes through me when we met last in Lagos two weeks ago, I am here today to deliver the shoes to you sir. These shoes, including the one I am wearing are made by our people in Aba. We want you to wear them and tell others about them. As promoters of made in Aba products, we have taken it upon ourselves to promote made in Aba goods by wearing them and by telling others about them."

Responding, General Obasanjo said: "Governor, I can't thank you enough, and through you, I cannot thank my brothers and my sisters who have decided to adorn me with these wonderful, classy and classic shoes made in our land by our own people.

"For me, this is very significant in many ways. In fact, let me deliver to you a message from The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) which they ask me to deliver to you. Afreximbank is spearheading made in Africa, and they came during their annual meeting. The message they left for me to you is that they have heard so much about Aba, and they want me to get in touch with you so they can come back and pay a special visit to Aba, because they want to establish an industrial park in Aba to encourage production and exportation of goods made in Africa.

"And if the shoes you gave me here, which I am wearing one of them, feeling very comfortable on my feet, if they are good for me, I believe they should be good for Africa, and for anybody in Nigeria and indeed for anybody in the world.

"When we use what we make by ourselves for ourselves, others will simply join us in using them because we are proud of them.

"These shoes are so comfortable and they are so good. Anybody watching me, no matter how high or low, who wants to help Nigeria get out of recession quickly should call the makers of these shoes in Aba to make for them."

If only we can patronise them and encourage them, but we prefer to buy from China with poorer quality.

Some made in ABA product are good especially company.... I think that what they call it.
I think they should focus on quality instead of quantity.

This is the only way to get out of this recession. Made in Nigeria products.
You should check out shirts made in Aba! Fabulous designs that T.M Lewin hasn't thought of.

Toothpick,CD plates, Ceramic plats, cotton wool, all food products, shoes, clothes, etc should be made in Nigeria.

I love that the Governor has made himself the Chief Marketing offices.

He might just be the saviour Abia state needs because it's way overdue!
Kudos Governor!!

Quality matters.

lvahstherapy.blogspot.com said...

See my governor laughing anyhow. As a home girl, Aba is the real deal just bad roads and bad governance. If you enter market,you won't want to come out. See me feeling fly.

Jay Moore said...

Abia state "Jet flyer"Governor seem not to know his left from his right.
Seriously???
So you left Abia to Ota just to showcase 5made in Aba shoes to OBJ with loads of entourage. Your entourage is going to cost tax payers more than your products.
Our leaders as just visionless.
What happened to calling international press to showcase your product atleast the world will know you are about to turn your city to "Ganzhou China".
Very shameful.
Abia and Imo state really need NEW LEADERS. All the have are visionless Governors both past and present.

Chidinma Gift said...

Very good quality shoes but naija people because na Aba made they go dey price am below price and when they give them the equivalent of what you priced they come back to say is fake

Jay Moore said...

are just**

charitybino said...

Way to go.

miss joe said...

U are the ignorant one here..... Nice move my govooo... Disregard nay sayers... Aba rocks. Proudly nwa Aba

Jay Moore said...

And who is this mumu called @MissJoe?
Nay sayers? I guess you are not knowledgeable with your state. Your state is being misruled by leaders Abians deserve. Aba should be the industrial capital of the East but your past and present Governors are not visionary.
Aba is a dead place city. Your Governor is yet to fix his state. We are waiting to hear his achievements after 4years. He need to perform now because next election won't be easy for him.

Amacastel said...

U are a pro in ABA purchase the Company shoes has better quality than higher China quality I can wear for more than 5yrs I no dy spoil . But is almost the same price with China import irrespective that no duty was paid on it.

Amacastel said...
