50 Hot-Selling Things To Export From Nigeria

Since the constant collapse of the Nigerian Naira against the US dollar, millions of Nigerians have been clamouring for Made-in-Nigeria goods to export abroad.

The need for Nigerian businesses to look inwards and produce more with local raw materials, human resources, and God’s given minerals.

A nation cannot grow without export.

Therefore, the Nigerian government have over the years been sprinkling manure on the exportation field to grow it further especially the agribusiness.
