The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi has emphasised the need for leaders to embrace the use of local products.
Oba Ogunwusi made the call in his palace in Ile-Ife when he received two vehicles and three motorbikes from an indigenous vehicle manufacturing company in commemoration of his 8th year on the throne.
He said the sure way to grow the nation’s economy was for all to cultivate the habit of using more local content, urging leaders at various levels to show examples.
Oba Ogunwusi called on political leaders to desist from promoting foreign commodities, adding that Nigerian lawmakers should make it mandatory for anyone having any business with the parliament to wear and make use of indigenous products.
The monarch also charged President Bola Tinubu, governors and federal lawmakers to include locally made and assembled vehicles in their fleet.
