Nigeria have laws protecting local craftsmen, farmers and artisans from foreign imports. Yet you won’t find fat cats in Asokoro, Maitama, Ikoyi or Victoria Island ordering furniture from Sunny O in Dei Dei Lumberyards when they can import it from the latest IKEA catalog.
Why buy the yams and rice grown on Fatima’s farm in Suleja, Niger State when you can eat a 5 course meal at the Chinese restaurant in Victoria Island while I try smuggling moi moi from Mama Cass and Mr. Bigg’s through Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport. – @OgbeniAyotunde
