The Overseeing Officer at the Electronics Development Institute, (ELDI), Awka, Anambra State, Oluwaseyi Ogungbenro, said  Friday that patronising made-in-Nigeria products would assist in no small way towards solving the nation's current economic quagmire.

He made the ascertion when he received in audience the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Anambra State Correspondent, Joy Mbachi, who led other members of staff on a courtesy visit to the institute.

According to him ELDI is an institute under the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure, (NASENI), with focus on electronics, software and hardware researches as well as production of prototypes for small and medium enterprises.

"I am appealing to Anambra residents and Nigerians to patronise made-in-Nigeria products because that is the way to go to come out of the current economic situation.

"It is not just a patriotic gesture, it is also a way to develop and grow local industries and Nigeria's economy.

"I made bold to say that ELDI has made lots of researches and produced prototypes and products that have capacity to solve some problems in our various households and offices.

"We produce energy saving bulbs, stabilizers, solar inverter, solar generating sets, automated mower, rechargeable lamps, automatic poultry cage system, electronic medical testing device, among others.

"These products are very affordable, durable and of high quality. Let us patronise our own locally made products and we will see our economy flourish."

Ogungbenro called on the Anambra State Government to partner with the research institute, saying that there are lots of services the institute could offer to the government at cheaper cost.

Earlier, Mbachi, State Correspondent, NAN, Awka, said the  visit was to seek partnership and to ensure effective coverage of the innovations at the institute.

According to Mbachi, publicizing the inventions of ELDI in the media would create awareness and attract the attention of Nigerians to their products and services.

Highlight of the visit was a tour of the institute's electronics workshops by the august visitors.
