More Cooperatives And Associations Embrace Idea of Promoting #MadeInNigeria Goods

By  | 

The #MadeInNigeria Initiative of Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki is being warmly received nationally, as various women’s cooperatives and associations embrace the home-grown #madeinnigeria campaign.

Recently, the The Executive Leadership of the Women Food Sellers Association paid a courtesy call to the Wife of the Senate President, Her Excellency Mrs. Toyin Saraki on Tuesday, the 14th of February 2017, to signal their support for the ongoing campaign of the Nigerian Senate under the leadership of Senate President Bukola Saraki.

The Women Food Sellers Association commended the foresight of the Made In Nigeria Campaign as an economic intervention to protect Nigerians from the hardship of the ongoing recession, which they stated had caused food prices to rise, which they hoped would be restored to previous levels as the economy improves.

The Courtesy Call had Mrs. Saraki who is also the Chair of the Forum of Senators’ Wives and Founder of the Wellbeing Foundation Africa, assuring the women of a future collaboration in promoting made in Nigeria products; especially made in Nigeria foods, by collaborating together to make this campaign a success in highlighting Nigerian culinary delicacies from every part of the country to be duly represented, showcased, promoted and made available both nationally and internationally, while urging the association members to promote nutritional content in food preparation, to combat common conditions such as iron-deficiency anaemia, easily prevented through use of ugwu (pumpkin leaf) in cooking, in an ancillary nutrition “Green Food Steps” campaign
