He made the comments while speaking at the 2017 National Productivity Day in Abuja.
“Permit me to make a comment on made-in-Nigeria initiative, which has also been recognized here,” Osinbajo said.
“As the president said in his 2017 budget speech, we must grow what we eat and we must use what we make; we must patronize made-in-Nigeria products to encourage local production,” he added.
The Made-in-Nigeria initiative was launched by Senate President, Bukola Saraki in January 2017 to encourage Nigerians to purchase locally produced goods.
The contest will run for three months and will serve the purpose of showcasing raw materials used in producing the goods and the process involved.
