Government committed to Made-in-Nigeria goods

22 November 2016, 19:26

Abuja - Permanent Secretary Special Duties Office (SDO) of the Secretary to the Government (SGF) Dr Amina Shamaki, has restated the commitment of the Government to the patronage of made in Nigeria sports equipment.

This would enable the development of grassroots games in Nigeria.

Shamaki has reiterated this during the fifth edition of the Annual ICON Sports Management Conference/Awards 2016, held at the Raw Materials Research and Development Hall in Abuja.

She said there was a Federal Government policy, which encouraged government departments and agencies to patronise local manufacturers in order to save hard earned foreign exchange.

Shamaki charged investors and sports equipment manufacturers not to limit production of sporting equipment to only football but across all games.

She meanwhile reiterated the need for sporting activities to start at an early age in the development of children, to enable the country identify potential and talented young Nigerians.

“Sport is one thing that is close to health. Without health, your life is not alive,” said Shamaki.
