Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Babatunde Ogunwusi has said that the newly launched OjajaMore retail outlet in Ibadan-Ile-Ife road Osun State will not only globalise made-in-Nigeria products but also crash demand for dollars in the commodity exchange.
The monarch, who made the comment while unveiling the retail outlet recently noted that the mall constructed with 100 per cent local content will rekindle the quest to key into the Federal Government’s idea of creating a viable economy that demystifies the teeming demand for dollars.
“However, instead of lamenting, we have salvaged the situation with the creation of OjajaMore to crash the incessant demand for dollars and put Naira at a great advantage for an economic boom.” .
He added that the massive groceries and retail outlet hub, which would further increase demand for well-packaged Nigerian-grown organic farm produce would also transform Nigeria from a consuming to producing economy, hereby deviating from an oil-driven economy to exploring other readily available options.
Ooni who noted that the OjajaMore was conceived as a result of his burning passion driven by youth empowerment, technology advancement and economic prosperity, said “OjajaMore remains one of the profound, timeless initiatives that I envisioned for the modernisation of Ile-Ife, Osun State, and other Nigerian cities.
Ooni also noted that Nigerians need to invest aggressively in promoting local farming just like the Western Regional Government invested in Cocoa which became a massive source of income and proceeds made from it were used to fund education and some other capital projects within the region
The vision of OjajaMore as an indigenous entity with a modern continental outlook is to play a prominent role in people’s lives as conduct that provides relatable experiences beyond traditional shopping while driving a robust economic culture
