‘Hypocrisy Smells Bad’ – Reactions As Tinubu Asks Nigerians To Buy Made-in-Nigeria Goods

Several reactions have trailed the advice by President Bola Tinubu to Nigerians on Friday, March 22, 2024.

Recall that the President had urged Nigerians to patronise made-in-Nigeria products and services to sustain the naira’s recent gains in the foreign exchange market.

Tinubu gave the advice through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, while addressing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa on Friday.

According to the presidential aide, the recent appreciation of the value of the naira against the dollar is a good development but not yet satisfactory.

Ngelale stated that the strengthening of the Naira was achieved through collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and other government agencies.

He stated that CBN and other agencies achieved this feat by dealing decisively with sharp practices on certain cryptocurrency trading platforms within the parallel market of the foreign exchange ecosystem.

However, some Nigerians took to social media to commend the president for the advice, while others asked him and his appointees to start patronising Nigerian goods and services.

See some of the reactions below.
