Reps urge Nigerian govt to enforce executive order on patronage

The call for enforcing compliance with Executive Order 003 of 2017 on the patronage of Nigerian-made products was made by the House of Representatives. This came after Rep. Esosa Iyawe (LP-Edo) presented a motion during plenary in Abuja. In his motion, Iyawe highlighted the significance of the textile sector in the Nigerian economy and emphasized the need for adherence to the executive order. He also raised concerns about the low patronage of local textiles, which could have adverse effects on the country’s textile industry and economic growth. The House urged the Federal Government to implement and enforce Executive Order 003 of 2017 and to conduct awareness campaigns to educate Nigerians about the benefits of supporting indigenous textile manufacturers. Additionally, they called upon various government agencies and the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Investment to take proactive steps to promote sustainable economic development.
