“Nigerians Must Wake Up, Appreciate Their Own Goods” — Lawyer

(Last Updated On: )

Nigerians have been urged by an Ilorin-based legal practitioner, Mr Yusuf Abdullahi, to wake up and appreciate their own goods rather than investing in other people’s economy.

Abdullahi, who gave the advice in Ilorin on Saturday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said most people were fond of glorifying foreign-made goods to the detriment of home made ones.
According to him, most Nigerians prefer to pay high prices for substandard goods and products from abroad than to pay lesser for high quality made-in-Nigeria goods.
“We see anything Nigeria-made as ‘fake’. We prefer to buy substandard abroad goods than to buy quality home made goods.
“Nigerians must wake up and appreciate their own goods rather than investing in other people’s economy.
“You see some people paying huge amount of money for some foreign wears that does not worth it . When you ask them to pay for Nigeria wears, they will tell you God forbid.
“We need to change our mentality and value what we have. It is not everything in Nigeria that is fake,” he said.
The legal practitioner, however, called on government at all levels to ensure strict monitoring of goods produced in the country.
He advised government to task SON, NAFDAC and other relevant agencies not to compromise on their duties.
“Government must ensure strict supervisions are made via their machineries to ensure quality goods are in circulation,” he said.
