INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

As new ideas in technology continue to evolve, the production efficiency of made in Nigeria products continue to increase. History has it that the economy of Nigeria has thrived with the growth of Nigeria made products ranging from the time of dependence on agricultural products such as cocoa and other related products.

The impact of made in Nigeria products on the economy of Nigeria was very high in the seventies (70s)as these products are exported from Nigeria to other countries.

It is evident that even with a high level of poverty in Nigeria the manufacturing sector has one of the highest contributions to the gross domestic product of Nigeria (GDP).

According to (Ayodele, Obafemi and Ebong, 2013) stated that Nigeria has about 75% of land suitable for agriculture; to move forward the country must improve the low productivity of current agricultural companies, engage the level of competition within the agricultural sector, develop domestic policies and increase the funding for this sector.

Another made in Nigeria product that have significant effect on the economic development of Nigeria is the oil and gas sector; Oil being the mainstay of the Nigerian economy plays a vital role in shaping the economic and political destiny of the Nigeria. The crude oil as made in Nigeria product serves as a source of foreign exchange to Nigeria and other countries.
