Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is expected to declare open the first and largest Made-in-Nigeria Building Material Trade Show, holding in Lagos.

This was made known in a press statement released to newsmen by the organiser, Mrs. Roni Akins, Publisher Global Homes Magazine, a UK based real estate publication that specialises in housing journalism in the UK and Nigeria.
The Expo will hold from Tuesday 2nd to Wednesday 3rd, May 2017 at the Oriental Hotel, 3 Lekki Way-Epe Express Way, Lagos State, from 10 .00am to 6 .00 pm daily.

The event tagged: “Buy Nigeria to Build Nigeria” is expected to bring an entire portfolio of building and construction products and solutions in one place, where building material Manufacturers, Suppliers and Support Service providers will showcase their best.

“The major objectives of this trade show,” according to Mrs Akins, “are to promote made in Nigeria building products; help made in Nigeria building products gain wide acceptance and patronage and showcase the inventiveness and competitiveness of indigenous producers of building material products.”

She said the 2-day event would also serve to expose the challenges facing the sector as well as proffer solutions for the way forward. In view of this, outstanding professionals and seasoned executives have been lined up to lay bare the inherent benefits to be reaped in sustaining the tempo of a market saturated with made in Nigeria building products.

Although this is the first time the Made in Nigeria Building Material Trade Show would be held in Nigeria, but Akins said, it would henceforth be held annually because “an event of this nature has the capacity to revolutionise the building material sector of the Nigerian economy in years to come.”
