Federal Government is set to enforce its directive to ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) to buy Made-in-Nigeria goods as a matter of policy priority.

President Goodluck Jonathan has also directed the Minister of Trade and Investment to compile the list of goods currently being imported but which local companies can produce.
This, the president said, would enable government to grant incentives to the local companies to produce them and also enjoy government patronage....

GEJ wan score political point by all means... Lets see how well this policy will be implemented.../??

this is long overdue, obasanjo tried the same by baning lots of importation but we cried outnot knowing what he intended. I hope our business men and entreprenuers take advantage of these.
Good one.
