Nigerians are extremely hard working people and willing to improve on quality. It is this same natural inborn quality that the people of Okene in Kogi state exhibited during the BHiip Enterprise Hunt through the display of various work tools crafted and developed from locally sourced materials and resources.
A greater number of the items on display proved to be stronger and sturdier than most Chinese made equivalents currently in the market. Select pieces from the Enterprise Hunt will be delivered to the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) amongst others for certification and approval. If an economy must grow, the citizens must patronize it’s products.
Locally produced tools and products exhibited included a wheel barrow, hand trowels, shovels, a hand-made vehicle styled baby crib made from real Mahogany wood to name but a few.
The Enterprise hunt was indeed a huge success. We are excited and look forward to visiting your city to unearth more potential for impact investment. Watch this space for more details for updates.
