President Muhammadu Buhari on October 10 declared open the 22nd Nigerian Economic Summit (NESG 2016) themed “Made in Nigeria” at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja on October 10, 2016.
The leader of the nation asked Nigerians to change their habits by patronizing made-in-Nigeria products and services.
The president said that increasing local production and services will not only create jobs for the young Nigerians but move Nigeria from an import-based to an export-based country.
Buhari stated: “I am also delighted that your theme is: ‘Made in Nigeria’ which lies at the heart of so many efforts we are making to lead us through this trouble times and lay a firm foundation for the future”.
President Buhari also took a tour of the exhibition.
The NESG has focused on the need to embrace self- sufficiency as a practicable alternative to improve Nigeria’s dwindling economy.
The country’s economy is currently in recession as was shown by the data released at the end of August.
