LCCI decries lack of value in non-oil exports

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has charged local exporters to get discouraged from the practice of exporting primary products outside the shores of Nigeria without adding any value addition to the development of the nation’s non-oil sector of the economy.

Its national President, Dr. Nike Akande, who made this known at her opening remarks at the Chamber’s symposium on non-oil exports in Lagos yesterday, stated that it was time for the country’s nonexport sector be given a place of priority by the Organised Private Sector and the Federal Government in order to deliver the desired value chain addition to the ailing economy.
