That is an indication that the Made-in-Naija campaign would foster Aba- made products, and even encourage them. Recently, there were reports of an order for 50,000 in-Aba boots for Nigerian soldiers, as well as, the one placed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. This development, making them more passionate clearly thrills producers in Aba, and with renewed commitment and determination to go the additional mile.

That is quite clear, as prior to this time, the state governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu had embarked on an unprecedented promotional effort for made-in-Aba merchandises, since assumption of office.

Recently, ACCIMA, at a one day workshop on the challenges of Southeast stakeholders in transportation trade, organised by the Southeast organizing office of the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC), recorded four of the challenges being faced in this line of business to comprise, imposition of Value Added Tax (VAT) on imported goods, describing it as an aberration.

The body also whined that "most exporters in Aba are confronting the challenge of late repatriation of their export earnings from importers abroad, describing the scenario as serious discouragement to all those intending to investigate export business.

Other criticisms were: Mishandling to warehouses by law enforcement along with other government agents, that they said amounts to multiple taxation that is indirect in transit. They also mentioned the non-finish of the Abia State Dry Port undertaking at Ntigha, meant to reduce the Southeast importers/shippers numerous encumbrances.

Interestingly, there are just two major power stations in Aba, certainly one of which run by the Geometric Power Ltd. and the other at Osisioma, will be managed by the Federal government at Alaoji The two environs and can handle supplying more than enough electricity demands of Aba if entirely managed.

He clarified that there's no discrimination against locally made products by the government. It was assembled that the state government has made budgetary provisions for loans to medium and small enterprises, part of which was specially set aside for small-scale industries.

MultiChoice Nigeria has announced the return of the Nigerian reality TV show based on the Big Brother TV series; Big Brother Nigeria. Now referred to as Big Brother Naija, the show is returning after a ten year break.

By imposing high duties, "Government should patronise our products and protect us. Authorities also needs to help us in the procurement of raw materials and proper machinery, provide steady power supply, together with, improve access roads into the marketplace, to ensure that trucks can come in to load purchases. We ought to have the ability to get into low interest loans.

"We want government to award us contracts for the way to obtain belts, boots, wallets, leather hats and nurses belts. These are among our high quality products."He said there is a ready market and demand for their products, as mass-buyers come all the way from Mali, Ghana, Onitsha, Sokoto, Lagos, Kano and Maiduguri to patronise them.

On the quality of these products, Sir Christian Nwaubani, Chairman of the state Amalgamated Traders Association, told The Guardian the argument that Aba-made products are inferior for their imported counterparts no more hold.

He said: "The quality continues to be improved upon enormously. The moment new layouts and brands emerge from any part of the world, our creative team immediately dissects them to get the technique. It ought to be mentioned it is the same stuff used in producing these foreign products which Aba producers additionally use. Interestingly, people come from outside Nigeria to purchase Aba-made products, notably the leather and tailored clothing, including suits. Nigerians have bought into the notion of patronising Aba-made products and so are proud of these, too, as there is no difference now between them and the ones that were foreign."

Hon. Ossy Prestige, former First deputy President of the Aba Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ACCIMA), who's presently member of the House of Representatives, lamented that all the while that Aba producers were so desirous of producing high quality goods and consumers were patronising them, government did not fully provide enabling environment and facilities, such as, routine power supply, water, good roads, stopping multiple and prohibited taxes and levies, all of which, if addressed, would have had positive multiplier effects on overall production output.

He clarified that yearly trade fairs are usually held by the body, along with, and that ACCIMA is in the vanguard of creating awareness on the demand for a reversal of attitude by authorities, undertakes trade missions abroad, to promote made-in-Aba goods.

"Aba-made products are in high demand in Mali, Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Cameroon, among others. Nevertheless, authorities must play assess multiple taxation and its function he said. "Our locally made products are of high quality, though there is still room for improvement. But it ought to be mentioned that many imported goods are also substandard."

Also, a former president of ACCIMA, Chief Anthony Enukeme, clarified that the organisation uses trade fairs to identify allied products which may earn Nigeria foreign exchange and various locally made products, notably garments, leather. He explained: "If the exportation of Aba-made products are properly articulated and formalised by the Government through the Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC), our national fortunes will significantly improve through enormous foreign exchange earnings and fast medium scale industrial growth. All these processes will then create employment opportunities for our teeming unemployed school leavers."

He described that away garments and leather goods, Aba is, in addition, known in other regions of commercial and industrial entrepreneurship, for example, metal fabrication and manufacturing of spare parts, cosmetics, soaps, detergent and plastic products, amongst others, which led to the international acknowledgement of Aba by various world bodies as the "Japan of Africa."

Not only did he personally take the boots/shoes, belts and allied clothing to the military and para military authorities to ensure their quality, but had also cajoled them into adopting the concept of patronising home made products, telling them that the producers have the ability to satisfy their demand.

Ikpeazu also sponsored some Aba-based leather makers and allied merchandises to Turkey to exhibit and empower them study creation procedure in that country. And he has really been in the vanguard of patronising local companies, as he often wears shoes and locally made clothes, therefore supporting residents to follow suit.

However he's not in this crusade as Senator Enyi Abaribe in addition has sponsored a made-in-Aba merchandises fair/exhibition in Abuja, which attracted visitors from throughout the country and beyond.

Aba, the industrial and commercial heart of the Southeast is notable for copy- dubbed Aba, creation - made. Locally made products for which Abia and Aba are noticed, and which compete favourably with imported ones, include for example leather products, shoes, cartons, totes, belts and boots. The two cities are also known for making quality soaps, plastics, foam, beverages, cloth dye, zinc/roofing sheets, tailoring, cosmetics, paints, fabricated machines, toilet papers, exercise books and bottled water, among others.

So, the present Made-in Naija effort and inward-looking will definitely reinforce the foundation already laid by Ikpeazu, so, giving the much-needed push in the correct direction. Producers in Aba are expressing their eagerness and readiness to cooperate with the Federal Government so as to realise this goal that is laudable. They've been confident that their products can compete with those from foreign countries.

Ariaria Marketplace in Aba houses hundreds of those local manufacturing companies, who are in the production of various goods. They are located in numerous rows of blocks, and create about N100bn yearly, as they bring buyers from within and outside the country.

The recognition of the market has grown through the years, so much so that in 2001, it brought the interest of James D. Wolfensohn, the then World Bank President, who visited it in the business of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, then Nigeria’s Finance minister, to the joy of the marketplace community.
