Senate President Bukola Saraki has called on Nigerians to patronize made-in-Nigeria clothing to help resuscitate the sector which once contributed significantly to the country’s GDP.

“We must all make the conscious effort to patronise Nigerian designers which can help reignite the textile industry that once contributed over 2 Billion dollars to our GDP in the 80’s,” Saraki wrote on his Facebook page after receiving a designer who made him clothes.

The senate president said he met the designer, who owns Adic Designs, at the Made in Aba Trade fair a few weeks ago. He visited Saraki to deliver outfits which the senate president called “trendy”.

There has been a growing call for patronage of made-in-Nigeria goods in recent weeks, especially with the value of the naira dropping against the dollar. While several businesses in the country have called on the government to act to save the day, the response has been for them to look inwards. It is believed that the current situation of things would encourage local production.
