Quality of goods and services will no longer be taken for granted in Nigeria, Dr Okechukwu Enelamah, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, has said.
Enelamah made the assertion at the 1st Nigeria National Quality Award (NiNQA) in Lagos.
Enelamah, represented by Mrs Omololu Opeyemi, the Director, Nigeria Commodity Exchange, said the ultimate focus of government and enterprises should be on product quality and service delivery.
He said that the award by UNIDO was well deserved, especially as the nation’s economy has stabilised, adding that such programme was needed for sustainability.
The minister said that the Federal Government would continue to make giant strides toward improving the ease of doing business in the country.
He noted that the enterprising spirit of Nigerians would be more productive without hurdles in their path.
He said that the plan was to periodically review economic performance, opportunities, trends and challenges within the sector toward providing innovative intervention to boost investment and productivity.
“Confidence building for creating trust is critical in enabling environment for investment and competitiveness.
“The Nigeria National Quality Award initiative is a veritable tool in building both local and international trust in Nigeria for enhanced development,” he said.
