In furtherance of the federal government’s policy of ‘Buy Made In Nigeria’, the Nigerian Army has placed order for 50,000 pairs of shoes to be produced and supplied by young shoemakers in Aba, Abia State which will be used by its soldiers. Before now, the Army had been importing most of the footwear used by its troops. The commercial town of Aba is famous for its range of locally made leather and footwear.

The Nigerian Air Force, also as part of the ongoing drive to look inwards by patronising locally made products, had signed a memorandum of understanding with Innoson Motors, based in Nnewi in Anambra State, for the production of spare parts for its fleet.

It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had, while speaking at the just concluded 22nd Nigerian Economic Summit, implored Nigerians to patronize made in Nigeria goods so as to enable the nation to move from import dependence to self-sufficiency in local production and become an export-led economy in goods and services.
