Group holds fair for made-in-Nigeria products

The ‘Simply Nigerian Fair’ witnessed a large turnout of excited shoppers at its recently held second edition.

About 800 guests spent the day at the Garden Fusion Centre, Bedwell Road, Ikoyi, in Lagos, where the fair took place two weeks ago.

The fair is an initiative which promotes home-grown businesses by providing them an affordable platform to showcase their products, increase their market, broaden their networks and add value to their businesses.

About 50 vendors took part in this month’s fair, selling locally produced, grown or assembled products across six categories – food and drinks; hair and beauty; home and lifestyle; fresh produce; fabrics and footwear; and plants and flowers.

According to a statement issued by its organisers, the SNF has entered into partnership with the Federal Ministry of Trade and Investment, with its Minister of State, Aisha Abubakar, being the special guest at the first edition of the event which held last November.

Under the partnership, representatives of key parastatals like the Corporate Affairs Commission, Standards Organisation of Nigeria, Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria and Nigerian Export Promotion Council held a briefing with SNF vendors to give them information and advice on how to work with their various agencies.

The founder and director of the initiative, Mrs. Temi Shenjobi, stated that the SNF would be a quarterly programme.

“Our aim is to increase the potential of these enterprises to grow into sustainable and profitable businesses that can create jobs and promote the talent, hard work and heritage of Nigerians to the world,” she said.

Other directors behind the fair are Mrs. Linda Okome, Mrs. Penelope Gobir and Ms. Nkiru Asika.

The fair had in attendance celebrities like Mo Abudu, Omawumi, Waje, and Kate Henshaw, who did the honours of officially opening the fair.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
