Just imagine what would happen if Government ministries and other parastatals patronize the shoe makers in Aba. Imagine what happens when Aba, with Government firm support, starts supplying shoes to pry and secondary schools in Nigeria . Let the SON(standard Organization on Nigeria) get experts to Aba to standardize the various “shoe making assemblies” there to international standards.
Just imagine how things would work if there are conscious efforts to always patronize the Peugeot assembly plant in Kaduna by the Governments and ministries. Imagine what would happen if government and companies in Nigeria patronize ANAMCO vehicle assembly plants in Enugu for buses.
The senators should spend the billions on Peugeout plant in Kaduna and ANAMCO for their cars. Let those factories have continuous orders from Government ministries and agencies. The directors and Permanent secretaries should stop looking at how they would “bourgeon their personal accounts” They should help the system by reducing the greed.
Imagine making sure that pupils in schools are fed with Ofada rice, Nigeria produced beans, plantain, chickens and eggs from Nigeria farms, etc. Let us imagine what this would do for many people who are venturing into agriculture.
Imagine what would happen if the soaps being bought by Nigerians are mainly Nigerian made soaps. Imagine coming out with a policy that makes it mandatory for Nigerians to manage the retail ends of any business in Nigeria.
Imagine the production lines of dying Textile mills if school uniforms must be produced in Nigeria.Imagine..imagine…”
Right now the oil price has virtually disappeared. I really understand that “mouth don wide” so it would be difficult for many “top people” to be used to this kind of “low money”. However, the resultant effect of this oil money drop is presently unpalatable. We just need to move on in this difficult time.
However, nobody should be spared of money chopping o!! Anyone in the dock should be made to pay. However, we should just consider our imaginations…Ewolewoo!!
