LAGOS, (CAJ News) – ONE of the sponsors of the upcoming Nigeria Manufacturing Expo has projected the country to fulfill its potential as a manufacturing hub.

Gibadi, rated as the continent’s leading online industrial store is the silver sponsor of the exp scheduled for Lagos on March 15-17.

“We are thrilled about Nigeria living up to the potential of her large population and vast human and natural resources,” Ola Ogunsemowo, General Manager of Gibadi, said in an interview ahead of the event.

He said with the recent renewed efforts on diversification, Nigeria was well on its way to reversing the trend of import-dependence.

“To think of the many positive impacts this will have on local manufacturers and the nation’s economy is more than exciting,” said Ogunsemowo.

To achieve this, he said stakeholders must address unreliable power supply, inadequate infrastructure especially road network and ineffective government policies in supporting technological growth.

“We see Nigeria’s manufacturing industry transforming its potential into a global impact,” said Ogunsemowo.

“We are committed to making this a reality by providing the platform that instantly connects the buyers and manufacturers, through internet technologies,” he added.

Hundreds of leading manufacturing experts will meet for the third annual Nigeria Manufacturing Expo, which will be launched in response to the government’s commitment to industrialisation and Nigeria’s need to diversify.

The comprehensive manufacturing equipment event will cover all major sectors.
