Anambra State Governor, Professor Charles Soludo, has canvassed for the promotion of ‘Made in Nigeria’ products as a job creator and economic catalyst.
According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, Soludo made the call at the International Convention Centre Awka, during the Anambra Fashion Expo (AFE) 2022.

He said the event is part of an effort by his daughter, Adaora Soludo, to promote indigenous fabrics.
According to him, his clothes are usually designed and sewn by his daughter, while his shoes are made in Ogbunike.
“Our primary job is to promote anything made in Anambra,” he said.
“When my daughter was 12 years old, she insisted that we must buy her a sewing machine. We did. Little did we know that she will end up being a fashion person; notwithstanding her degrees.
“The message here is that we parents should encourage our children to take up whatever they have passion for. I am impressed because not a single kobo of Anambra money entered into this project, even this hall, they paid for it.”
