Melaye had while contributing to the motion sponsored by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia South) said the campaign should not be limited to goods alone but girls should be included.
General laughter greeted Melaye's contribution, a situation that made him to stop for a while.
But he later continued by saying, " With due apology to my Comrade Governor of Edo state, we must start to campaign for made in Nigeria girls. It is time for my colleagues to start patronising made in Nigeria women".
It was after he stated this that the Senate President Bukola Saraki cut in and said that motion was clear enough.
Earlier while moving the motion, Abaribe said until Nigeria adopt a 'pro-made in Nigeria ' procurement policy, made in Nigeria would continue to lag behind both in competition and acceptability.
“Economic indicators have confirmed that unless we produce what we consume, the Nigerian economy will be worse off for it," he said.
In adopting the motion, the Senate urged the Federal Government to initiate and implement the first option policy on purchase of locally manufactured products for any government procurement in all arms of government and every public funded organization.
