Photos: Abia state gov delivers some Made in Aba shoes ex President Obasanjo ordered for weeks ago

The former President was at a function in Lagos some weeks back and ordered some Made in Aba shoes. Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, personally delivered the shoes to Obasanjo at his home in Ogun state yesterday. More photos after the cut ...
Speaking while delivering the goods, the Governor said:

"Sir, you made an order for made in Aba shoes through me when we met last in Lagos two weeks ago, I am here today to deliver the shoes to you sir. These shoes, including the one I am wearing are made by our people in Aba. We want you to wear them and tell others about them. As promoters of made in Aba products, we have taken it upon ourselves to promote made in Aba goods by wearing them and by telling others about them."

In his remarks, General Obasanjo said: "Governor, I can’t thank you enough, and through you, I cannot thank my brothers and my sisters who have decided to adorn me with these wonderful, classy and classic shoes made in our land by our own people. For me, this is very significant in many ways. In fact, let me deliver to you a message from The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) which they ask me to deliver to you. Afreximbank is spearheading made in Africa, and they came during their annual meeting. The message they left for me to you is that they have heard so much about Aba, and they want me to get in touch with you so they can come back and pay a special visit to Aba, because they want to establish an industrial park in Aba to encourage production and exportation of goods made in Africa

"And if the shoes you gave me here, which I am wearing one of them, feeling very comfortable on my feet, if they are good for me, I believe they should be good for Africa, and for anybody in Nigeria and indeed for anybody in the world. When. We use what we make by ourselves for ourselves, others will simply join us in using them because we are proud of them. These shoes are so comfortable and they are so good. Anybody watching me, no matter how high or low, who wants to help Nigeria get out of recession quickly should call the makers of these shoes in Aba to make for them."

Honestly the only way out for us. If influential people buy made in Nigeria, the rest of us will be compelled to follow suit.

Honestly the only way out for us. When the influential people in our society start patronizing made in Nigeria products, the rest of us will become compelled to follow suit.
