Production for export key to economic survival of Abia, Nigerian economy- Atasie Ogbonnaya Ikokwu, Umuahia

The chief economic adviser to the Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Sir Mac Atasie, has harped on the need for Nigerians to embark on production for export, as a way of surmounting the current economic upheavals bedeviling the country.

Atasie, who is the CEO NEXTZON Business Services Ltd, also pointed out that innovation and strategic Action in the area of revenue mobilization and collection will also aid states and Federal Governments in surmounting their economic challenges.

He insisted that Nigerians must endeavour to manufacture goods that can be sold at the world market, pointing out that "innovation means breaking from the usual way of doing things to a new way of doing things".

Atasie spoke during an interaction with online media practitioners in Umuahia the state capital on Saturday.

He said "In my opinion, innovation is the single bullet that will push for success and economic development for our families, businesses, individuals, for a state and a country.

"Failure to innovate means you will keep doing the same thing you have always done and you know that doing the same thing and expecting different result is called madness”.

"A poor nation can not generate development capital by selling to her poor citizens, it can only achieve accelerated growth and development if it can finance her vision and train it's citizens to produce for the outside world to buy.

"If a nation do not produce what people of today and tomorrow needs, it will not receive the kind of money it needs from other nations.

He commended Ikpeazu, for his blue print and vision for the development of Abia state, saying; "if we can get Aba right as its economic hub it has gotten its economic development program right".
