Campaigns promoting the need for Nigerians to buy Nigerian products have been on for a while now, but they haven’t had much effect on the buying behavior of Nigerians, this gap inspired Laolu Osinbajo to develop awacustomer.com, an e-commerce platform for strictly made in Nigerian products.
What amazes me about this initiative is the fact that it was created by a lawyer from the household of the incumbent Nigerian Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, whose profession isn’t even related to business, but his love for his dear country has made him take on the responsibility to support Nigerian producers of all sizes.
Laolu sees this as a way of contributing his own quota to the development of Nigeria.
In my chat with him about this impactful platform, he made it known that his desire to dispel the notion that Nigerian products are not good, drove him to start ‘awacusomer’.
The lawyer turned entrepreneur shared insights, that can help business owners and youths.
I also got him to sing (Laughs), one of the special songs he shares frequently on his social media page.
This is an all-in-one interview and nothing close to the regular, so take a few minutes off your time to watch and enjoy it.
