Made-In-Nigeria Dresses To Be Worn Mondays And Wednesdays- Federal Government

Proudly Nigerian

Yes, so now all Ogas should make it mandatory for workers to wear fabrics and styles made in Nigeria on Mondays and Wednesdays. Infact not workers alone, so far you are a Nigerian and you are proud of being one. I guess there is no reason why we should not embrace this. This is actually one way of bringing back our dignity as Nigerians, except you ain’t proud to be one.

The Federal Government of Nigeria to this effect, approved the adoption of Mondays and Wednesdays every week, as Made-in-Nigeria Dress Days across the country.

The approval was contained in a letter from the Federal Ministry of Information & Culture, dated 4th April, 2017, and addressed to the Executive Secretary of National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma.

Government further directed that a presentation on the Made-in-Nigeria Campaign be made to the National Economic Council to secure the buy-in of State Governments.

As a result, the Minister of Information & Culture, Lai Mohammed, has directed the Management of NICO to provide a comprehensive proposal on how to effectively implement the policy in a manner that would encourage all Nigerians to conveniently observe the Made-in-Nigeria Dress Days.

Recall that the Management of NICO had, in 2010, submitted a memo at the National Council on Culture and Tourism (NCCT), seeking government’s approval to declare Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, as what the Institute called, “Dress Nigeria Days” to boost our identity as a people as well as revive our moribund textile industry.

Reacting to the Government’s approval for Made-in-Nigeria Dress Days, the Executive Secretary of NICO, Dr. Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma, told NICO News that, for him, it is one major breakthrough so far recorded by his administration in the Institute.

 I hope we won’t start seeing funny styles on the streets though…lol
