Abia State Has Generated N1.4bn From Made-in-Nigeria Products Since Its Inception

Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State yesterday said that the state had generated N1.4 billion from the sale of Made-in-Nigeria goods since the campaign began.



The governor disclosed this while addressing state House Correspondents in Abuja after conferring with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on the proposed committee on the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Council.


The governor stated that besides the investments the Made-in-Aba fashion show was held in Abuja and another one was held in New York where they (manufacturers) came face to face with world class designers “and we did not do badly at all. The Made-in-Nigeria campaign has assumed international dimension now.


On what the state had done to encourage local industries, the governor stated that having direct sales of N1.4 billion was not a joke and ensuring that there was a constant and uninterrupted power supply for three weeks was not also a mean feat.


According to the governor, exposing them to fairs as far as to New York is not something you sweep under the carpet.
“Confidence is returned; everybody now places“ Proudly Aba, Proudly Nigeria,” on his ware. If our youths are happy doing what they are doing then we have started something.

Enyimba city!
Aba always have potentials. And the most welcoming place & entity that is a thriving environment in Igboland for everyone no matter who you r or where u com from.
Ngwa land has no osu or caste system or culture to block someone who is really good & honest from succeeding in their community.

Unfortunately, with all these internally generated monies this man still owes his people months and months of unpaid salaries. I pray God gives him wisdom to be a better servant to his people.

That governor Ikpeazu is an imbecile. Go to Aba and u will weep. No light, no road, no security, dirty environment, nothing.

Way to go. If the right environment was provided surely the revenue would have been much higher.

Fat lie oga. More like 140 billion. Reducing the amount and reducing attraction and using the lie to create excuse of not paying civil servants.
