'Trading local products for more expensive, genetically modified & cancer-causing stuff would not make you classier' - Sonia Ogbonna

Sonia, wife to Nollywood actor IK Ogbonna, shares her thoughts on buy Naira to grow the Naira.
"I only buy made in Naija. I don't know why so many people refer to "local" as if it's something bad or something to be shamed of. Why exactly do you think you should be so proud for buying "yankee" "foreign" stuff?
Imagine if we start appreciating and buying more of our precious,colorful local goods ? What would that do to our economy? Agriculture? The biggest black nation in the whole wide world-let's use our population in our advantage to build. Trading healthy, organic, local products for way more expensive genetically modified and cancer-causing stuff that even western world is trying to run away from would not make you appear any more classier, richer or sophisticated. Embrace your own. My family and I are proudly and very "local" . 🇳🇬"

Lol..it's not bad to call naija goods local..cos they are. They are produced locally, in our own vicinity/country as opposed to goods produced internationally from other countries. The problem is that we perceive the word 'local' same way we perceive anything Nigerian. Even Americans refer to goods produced in their country as local goods.
