The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Architect Olamilekan Adegbite has blamed Nigerians’ strong appetite for foreign products as responsible for low production and economic downturn.
He also blamed overpopulation for the growing poverty in the country.
Adegbite spoke in Ijebu – Ode, Ogun State at a town hall meeting with the youths as part of the fallout of the #EndSARS protest.
He noted that Nigerians unquenchable thirst for foreign products leads to little or no patronage of the locally made goods, thereby killing indigenous industries.
The Minister also worried that Churches and Mosques are growing at the detriment of the economy, saying we should all be blamed for the country’s woes.
