proudly Naija1Over the years, a key economic challenge that has confronted every new administration in Nigeria is the issue of creating an enabling economic environment for locally made products and services. The new administration with its change mantra, is toeing the same line.

Notwithstanding the traction that globalization, along with the free movement of goods and services, is gaining in international trade, some countries have gone ahead to develop policies to protect and encourage local manufacturers, service providers and innovators. Although, growing in stature and influence as a key player in international business, China was said to have strategically locked down her borders to stem the influx of foreign goods and extensively promote locally made goods.

Owing to such a bold, though unpopular move, China has emerged as the world’s largest manufacturer of technology produce. People and businesses from all corners of the globe visit China to make orders which, in turn, boosts the economy significantly, thus engendering a high GDP and increased job opportunities, in addition to a low rate of inflation, among other benefits.

While quality control and reduced cost of production would help in no small measure to enhance locally made Nigerian goods, the potentialities for improvement are well recognized. A visit to the Onitsha market, the biggest clothes market in West Africa, presents a rich tapestry of talents in production, design, distribution, and the entire value chain of the business.

Truth be told, poor power and infrastructure are enough headaches to dissuade anyone venturing into technology, yet right in the heart of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial nerve centre, a young Nigerian with a passion for productivity, Afolabi Abiodun, applied himself and his team to develop the time attendance management systems (TAMS®), a human resource software that reduces administrative effort and increases data quality by way of a seamless user experience.

Abiodun’s capacity and resourcefulness to adapt global technology to local needs has positioned the time attendance management systems (TAMS®), an end-to-end human resource solution configured to meet an organization’s need for optimized productivity, facility patrol and security management, as a must-have tool for operational efficiency.
TAMS® enables the user to access and manage employee information from any location via the computer and other intelligent devices, including iPad, laptop, mobile phones etc.

While Nigerians in the Diaspora- such as Saheed Adepoju, Ndubuisi Ekekwe, Jelani Aliyu, Shehu Saleh Balami, and many more – continue to make waves in their respective fields of endeavor, government at the local front must not jettison its commitment to motivate local manufacturers and innovators by fully patronizing their work while further encouraging the citizenry to do same. In such a scenario, the Nigerian economy is a strong beneficiary through increased returns on investment and increase employment, which in turn reduces redundancy and poverty amongst the bulging youth population.
