As I have said in the past, we need to diversify the economy so that we will never again have to rely on one commodity to survive as a country. So that we can produce the food we eat, make our own textiles, produce most of the things we use and create the right environment for our youth to be able to benefit and create jobs through technology.

This has been the commitment and the mandate of this administration and I have remain focus on it since the assumption of this administration Fortunately, we have champions of made in Nigeria that have defied the odds over the years to produce locally and contribute to our economy. I hope by the end of this you will make useful and realistic recommendations and policies.” he said.
