The Speaker, State of Osun House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Timothy Owoeye has called on Nigerians to focus more on locally made products for the sustainability of the country’s econonomy in the year 2020.

Owoeye also enjoined them to always strive for the good of the land, saying the much publicised next level agenda of President Mohammadu Buhari led All Progressives Congress (APC) must begin with every Nigerian for a more prosperous country.

The Speaker, in a new year message released by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Alabi charged Nigerians to look inward and patronise our indigenous manufacturers

Owoeye reminded Nigerians of the need to cut down their dependence on foreign goods, especially food stuffs to increase local production and enhance entrepreneurship.

The Speaker noted that depending on Nigeria’s grown food and other products would help save the local currency which currently carries too much pressure.

He expressed regrets that despite the huge potential in sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing, Nigeria has failed to make use of the opportunities.‎

The Speaker who commended the Federal Government for closing  land borders said the effort has been yeilding good fruits with the increament in the patronage of locally grown rice and other cereals.

He said, "The recent border closure has yielded so much results in terms of local production. 

"We should sustain it and Nigerians should do more to patronize local content, by so doing we will be strengthening our economy and reducing unemployment in the country".

Owoeye also urged the people of the State of Osun to pray for the state and the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola so that development, peace and security would continue to reign.

The Speaker noted that the benefits of the recently concluded Economic summit in the  State can only come into fruition with the prayers of all.
