A one-time Secretary-General of the Commonwealth of Nations, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, has called on Nigerians, to support the recent closure of Nigeria’s land borders by President Muhammadu, saying it could promote a homegrown policy and boost the economy.
Chief Anyaoku made the call on Saturday stressing that the country would experience a positive turnaround in its economy if Nigerians curbed their appetite for imported goods.
the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the elder statesman to have said. “We should support our foreign border closure by President Muhammadu Buhari and its ultimate importance to the homegrown policy,”.
“It is clear that the abundant variety of Nigeria’s natural resources and our large population constitute adequate phases for the country’s economic prosperity if the federal and state governments can show a determination to provide the necessary policy and practical support.
“And also, if our citizens can be persuaded or even coerced through regulation into curbing their appetite for imported, rather than locally produced goods, there will be a tremendous turnaround in the economy.” Anyaoku said.
