Professor Chukwuma Soludo, a former CBN governor has called on Ndi-Igbo to bring their businesses back home (South-East), instead of setting up head offices in places like Lagos, Abuja, etc.

Speaking at the 3rd Anniversary of the Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano’s administration, Soludo made it clear that having offices in North or West isn’t the solution, but there’re things Igbos need to know.

According to him; “The narrative that you need to have the head office of your business in Lagos or Abuja to be national or international is also false. In today’s ICT-driven business world, location is becoming irrelevant for administrative purposes.

Our Nnewi brothers insisted on the Nnewi brand since the 1970s and the world has taken notice.

We now need the Anambra brand— and bring the world to Anambra! The history of emerging and dying cities show that no force, not even the rate of return on investment, can stop a people determined to write a new song for themselves. We must therefore stop reading the Book of Lamentations and star singing the songs of Solomon!”

Meanwhile, the federal government has shown a great interest in Made-In-Aba products, according to the vice president Yemi Osinbajo, “Nigeria has no business with China if all hands are on deck to develop Aba as a major industrial Base.”
