Ministry urges industry to produce quality products

08 February 2016, 20:32

Abuja - Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Hajia Aisha Abubakar, has charged local manufacturers to ensure their products are of good quality.

Permanent Secretary, Aminu Aliyu Bisalla, said this on her behalf during the signing ceremony of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Labora Shoes, the South African company, and GLOBAL Smartfit Nigeria Limited at her office.

“As a nation we are proud of our commodities, we are proud of our products,  Nigerians generally are rational people, producers should ensure good quality because consumers want value for their money,” the minister’s representative said.

Bisalla said Abubakar assured the manufacturers of the ministry’s support for home made products through a formidable campaign with the aim of providing jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in the country describing their venture as laudable.

She announced that a campaign for the patronage of made in Nigeria products would soon commence in the country.

She further pledged the readiness of the Government to support all similar initiatives not only on shoe product but on all small and medium enterprises (SMEs) stressing that the current administration was committed to it.

The two companies meanwhile seek government support for their plan to establish a model shoe factory in Nigeria.
