Globacom’s National Sales Coordinator, North Central, Kazeem Kaka, at the Abuja international trade fair organised by the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said Nigerians needed to begin to look inward for alternatives to foreign products and services in view of the present challenging condition of the country’s economy.
Nigeria’s foremost telecommunications company, Globacom, has canvassed support for locally made goods and services as a way of helping to grow the economy.
Kaka said doing this would help to create employment for the youth, boost revenue for the government and buoy up the value of the Naira against the dollar.
He said Globacom, as a wholly-owned Nigerian company, is committed to the economic empowerment of Nigerians, especially the youth who will then be able to develop themselves and contribute to the growth and development of their country.
Globacom played an active role at the trade fair, seizing the platform to exhibit its rich bouquet of products and services and resolving customers’ service issues.
The organisers of the trade fair said the fair, with the theme ‘Make it in Nigeria’, was conceived with a view to forming alliances with business leaders, trade associations, sister chambers of commerce, government agencies and foreign embassies to accomplish its goals of enhancing sustainable growth and development of businesses in Nigeria.
Established in 1986 to develop a more enterprising, vibrant and diverse economy, the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry is equally meant to strengthen local businesses and enterprises, attract investment, share prosperity and create better employment opportunities in the nation.
